We are the fans of the ’72 Summit Series, played between Canada and the USSR in September 1972. Over 13 million Canadians, and millions of hockey fans throughout the former USSR and from around the world had personal stories to tell about their ’72 Summit Series experiences. We want to collect as many of those personal stories as possible, before they are forever lost with the passing of time.
Tell us your ’72 story by submitting it in writing or by uploading it in an audio or video format. Encourage friends and family to submit their stories or record stories for those who may otherwise not be able to submit their own ’72 stories.
To educate, inform and entertain present and future generations with respect to the historical and cultural significance of the greatest hockey series ever played.
To collect, safeguard and share our ’72 stories.
In 2022, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the ’72 Summit Series, we will rebroadcast the series, in real-time, using the power of social media. We will highlight and share stories, pictures, audio and video submitted by fans of the ’72 Series. We will continue to educate, inform and entertain in this way, year after year, to ensure Our ’72 Stories are never forgotten.
