About Antarctic Hockey

Ryan Bahl has now played hockey on 6 Continents looking to complete his 7th Continent and the final leg in his epic quest to play hockey on all the Continents in the world. He has recently been featured in The Hockey News (full article here or read the short article) about his playing all over the world and his efforts to play in Antarctica. Ryan Bahl has played hockey everywhere and his experience in setting up hockey around the world makes him a perfect person to set up a historic event in Antarctica.

Ryan also has an amazing team working with him to finalize details for getting to Antarctica. Grant Budd, team captain and founder of hockey in the Falkland Islands, is working side-by-side with Ryan Bahl to make this historic event happen. Grant is a businessman originally from the UK, but now living in the Falkland Islands. His experience with business in that sector of the world, combined with his determination to set up hockey in a part of the world that has never seen hockey (just like the Falkland Islands), turn this duo into a real power house in establishing a venue and opportunity to play hockey in Antartica.

Ryan Bahl and Grant Budd originally met in Punta Arenas, Chile in 2015 and became close friends. They plan to meet again in Chile during July of 2016 and will work on finalizing details and going over plans to get to Antarctia. The team is more than determined to make this historic event happen and prove that if you set your mind to something, anything is truly possible.
