Columbus Fire vs Columbus Police
The First Responder Face-Off is the annual charity hockey game between the Columbus Fire Department and the Columbus Police Department. Up for grabs is the Buckeye Cup trophy and the bragging rights for the next year. These two teams leave it all out on the ice! Proceeds from the event benefit the Hockey Helping Heroes™ initiative of the First Responder Face-Off Foundation.
The First Responder Face-Off is coordinated in conjunction with the annual First Responder Night with Ohio State Hockey. This year the Ohio State Buckeyes will be taking on the Wisconsin Badgers at 7:00 PM. Your ticket is good for both games.
Your First Responder Face-Off ticket includes access to an interactive display of emergency vehicles, fire apparatus, SWAT vehicles, K9 and horse mounted patrol as well as First Responder personnel on the Northeast Plaza of the Schottenstein Center. You won’t want to miss a special performance by the Columbus Police & Fire Pipes & Drums!
Game tickets purchased through this site for First Responder Night with Ohio State Hockey benefit the First Responder Face-Off Foundation. This non-profit provides unparallaled support to First Responders across Central Ohio and to departments as well.
