Christmas cracker at the Skydome
It's the season to be jolly and Thursday night at the Skydome Arena (22nd December) will be the Genting Casino Coventry Blaze's final game before Christmas. The current Elite League Champion Sheffield Steelers are the visitors (7.30pm face-off).
The players will be in their festive jerseys and we ask fans that fans celebrate the holiday season by coming to the game in their best Christmas jumpers - however, with Elite League points at a premium, there will certainly be no goodwill shown on the ice as the two teams do battle.
If you haven’t got your tickets yet, they can still be purchased ONLINE, at the Skydome Arena box office in person or by calling them on 02476 630693. The box office is open from 9am every day and you can also pay on the door when you arrive, however it is recommended that you book online to receive an e-ticket guaranteeing a seat and to save queuing.
Sheffield fans please book block 6 & 7.

Following the game, the Blaze players will be circling the rink throwing sweets and chocolates into the stands, and rumour has it Santa Claus himself might be making an appearance during the game!
