Pre-Season Challenge Announce...

With the announcement earlier, today of match night prices and season ticket packages for the forthcoming season, the Herd are pleased to announce that the pre-season challenge weekend has been confirmed as double header versus the Peterborough Phantoms, competing for the first annual Billy Glover Memorial Trophy.

On the weekend of 2nd and 3rd September, The Bison will be taking to the ice for a pre-season warm up game in memory of the Peterborough Legend Billy Glover.

On Saturday 2nd, Bison will start the season at the arena with a home fixture and will travel to Peterborough on Sunday 3rd, where the winner of the trophy will be decided.

Billy was a well respected employee of Planet Ice, having worked for the company over 30 years right up to the day he passed away. A well known figure to staff across the Planet Ice company, he was also a part of the Peterborough hockey set up, delivering many roles over his time, as well as his passion for hockey.

The fixture between these two teams can't be more fitting with Bison representing Planet Ice, the work place he loved, and the Phantoms, representing his time with Peterborough Hockey.

Our league and cup campaign will then follow with the first games scheduled for Saturday and Sunday 9th and 10th September. These fixtures will be announced in due course.
