Set in the late 1970s amidst a poor economic climate and during the peak of the disco era in the United States, Bush Hockey League underscores the arduous story of a struggling hockey team. The Bush Leaguers are desperate as they play and live in cities with dwindling jobs and uncertain financial times. Soon they may find themselves in trouble losing not just fans, but their own jobs as hockey players.
Relive hockey as it was in the late 1970s with Bush Hockey League’s unique aesthetic that combines the vibrant colours of the disco era juxtaposed with the stark grittiness of industrial decay. Immerse yourself in the dark and dreary mixed with the liveliness and vibrancy that was the 70s.
Play in rinks where hockey was born. The rinks in Bush Hockey League are reminiscent of the old wood, bricks, and soul of top hockey arenas of the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Remember when players didn’t have helmets? Used wooden sticks? And had no respect for their faces or teeth? Remember when they had names like “Toe”, “Dick” and “Gump”? Put yourself in the shoes of players with big moustaches, big hair, and big hearts. And don’t forget the goalies who weren’t afraid to mix it up and didn’t want things like “pads” to get in the way.
