EIHL Ruling Prevents Fixture Change
The Sheffield Steelers have confirmed that the plan to move the game against the Genting Casino Coventry Blaze, originally scheduled for Saturday 4th March, to Wednesday 1st March, has failed after being advised by the EIHL of rules preventing them moving fixtures within a four-week period of the game.
Blaze had agreed to the fixture change at Sheffield’s request but on Thursday evening the Steelers were notified by league officials of the recent rule amendment that came into place following Sheffield’s cancelled fixture in Belfast last season.
To confirm the game will take place at the Sheffield Arena on Saturday 4th March – but with a 5pm face-off (originally scheduled for 7pm).
