Extra Fixture for Coventry Blaze

The Coventry Blaze ice hockey team will definitely have a home fixture on Wednesday 27 September, regardless of the outcome of the Benson & Hedges Cup games this weekend.

The Blaze are still in with a remote chance of qualifying for the ISL Challenge Round in the Benson & Hedges Cup. If they do qualify then they will play the current ISL Champions, Bracknell Bees, at the Skydome Arena on Wednesday.

Qualification for the Blaze however hangs on a thread. In order for them to qualify, top team Guildford Flames will have to slip up at home against lowly Slough Jets, and Blaze will have to win away at Basingstoke on Sunday.

With ice time already agreed for a match at the Arena, the Blaze have agreed with Hull Thunder that they could start their British National League campaign on Wednesday if the Blaze do not qualify for the Cup Challenge Round.

Operations Director, Grant Charman confirmed:

"Blaze had an outstanding fixture with the Thunder to agree and this seems like an ideal opportunity to maximise the usage of available ice at the Arena. Hull were also on standby until last weekend as they were also possible winners of their B&H Group so they had their full team together.

"We are also looking at a couple of other additional fixtures over the coming weeks and hope to have further news shortly."

Should the game on Wednesday be the BNL game against Hull the game will be a Season Ticket fixture, however, if Bracknell are the opponents Season Tickets will not be valid.
