Playoff weekend sold out

The Elite League playoff final weekend at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham is now a complete sell out for both Saturday and Sunday.

Following the completion of the quarter-finals over Easter, the final few tickets were snapped up quickly by fans wanting to be at the showpiece event of the British ice hockey season.

Elite League director, Todd Kelman, said: “It is always a great weekend where the sport comes together under one roof to watch four hockey games.

“It is something which makes British ice hockey stand from other European leagues and we are really proud that we are going to have another packed house and great atmosphere.

“Attendances have increased across the Elite League as the season has gone on and this is another sign that the sport is continuing to grow year on year.”

The first semi-final will be between Cardiff and Coventry at 1pm on Saturday, with second seeing Nottingham meet Fife at 5pm.

 The whole of the event will also be screened live on Premier Sports TV.
