Blaze break consecutive high attendance record

The Genting Casino Coventry are delighted to confirm that the crowd of 2,409 at the Skydome Arena on Sunday night vs. the Sheffield Steelers broke a club record for consecutive high attendances.

The game which was also Blaze’s 600th all-time home game was the 9th consecutive match at the Skydome with a crowd over 2,300.

The previous best of eight games with an attendance above 2,300 was recorded in the famous Grandslam season January-March 2005. This was equalled with Blaze’s highest ever against the Edinburgh Capitals on January 28th 2017 (2,365).

With the race for an Elite League playoff spot hotting up and the league leading Cardiff Devils coming to the Skydome this Saturday, the Blaze are excited to try to extend the record for as long as possible.

This just leaves us to say a HUGE THANK YOU to each and every one of you who has supported us this season and helped us to be able to report this very proud achievement.

This of course includes the great amount of away fans that we see visit us each week.

Chairman of the Blaze Andy Buxton said, “The support we have had, and continue to receive is phenomenal. Whatever the result, we’re proud of the product that we offer on a match-night at the Skydome Arena and we believe that the consistent high crowds demonstrate that. People enjoy Blaze hockey, whether it’s the intensity or speed of the sport, the family atmosphere, or the between period games, there is something for everyone! Added to our long-standing core of valued fans, this season we have been delighted to see more new faces than ever before come through the doors, and then come back time and time again."

Buxton continued, "We often say that the Blaze experience is the best night out in Coventry and we firmly believe that. Thank you again to everyone. That includes all of our dedicated supporters, the people who give up their time to help us put on the fabulous match-night experience, and to our office staff and media guys who work so hard to attract so many people to our games.”

Blaze are next in action at the Skydome on Arena on Saturday night (11th February). The Cardiff Devils are the visitors and as per our previous battles this season, we expect it to be an explosive game in front of another large crowd!
