The Coventry Blaze are based in the West Midlands of Great Britain. The club competes in the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), the UK’s premier top-flight ice hockey league.
Ice hockey is the number-one attended indoor professional sport in the UK and overall it is the third largest winter spectator sport in the UK after football and rugby union.
The EIHL (founded in 2003) consists of eleven teams representing all four Home Nations. The eleven other clubs are the Belfast Giants, Braehead Clan, Cardiff Devils, Dundee Stars, Edinburgh Capitals, Fife Flyers, Guildford Flames, Manchester Storm, Milton Keynes Lightning, Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers.
The Blaze, four time Elite League Champions (history), generally play once home and once away on Saturday and Sunday (between August and April), and on occasion mid-week.
Home games are played at the Skydome Arena, a 3,000 seat rink which is often all-but filled to capacity.
The Skydome complex itself is home to a number of restaurants, bars, Odeon Cinema, gym and our title sponsor Genting Casino.
Off the ice, we run a successful community programme which involves working with local schools, charities and businesses.
Playing with the Coventry Blaze can offer a variety of benefits including well-appointed accommodation in the cities most desirable areas, private vehicles and fitness club membership at the state-of-the-art Village Hotel, offering premium gym, swimming, and health and fitness facilities. We also offer a number of education packages in association with the world-renowned Coventry University.
