Cup final to be screened on BBC Sport website

Sunday’s Challenge Cup final between Nottingham Panthers and Cardiff Devils will be shown live on the BBC Sport website.

This will be the first time in the Elite League era that a major final will be shown live on a free-to-air platform.

Elite League chairman, Tony Smith, said: “Making the tournament more accessible for fans is one of the reasons why we changed the Challenge Cup to a one-off final last year.

“Whatever sport you follow the excitement of cup final day is something that fans understand and the league is really excited to be able to share ours with the wider sporting world.

“This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our sport in front of a huge audience who may not watch ice hockey on a regular basis."

Face-off on Sunday is 4pm and fans in the UK will be able to watch the game on the BBC Sport website at:
