Skate with the Players this Saturday (16th March 2019)With Saturday being our last NIHL league game of the season and after the popularity of the Christmas skate with the Bison what would be a more fitting end to the season to thank our fans for their loyalty and amazing support, they have given the team this year.
Supporters have been asking would we be holding another Skate with the Players as so many of you enjoyed the experience when we did it in December. It really is a great way to end a tremendous season - giving all our fans the opportunity to get on the ice with their heroes. We hope as many fans as possible join the boys on the ice this weekend”, said John Neville
Coach Tait commented, “The players and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to thank our loyal fans for the amazing support you have given the team this year. We are delighted to be able to offer fans another opportunity to get even closer to the players they cheer on every week so make sure you have cameras at the ready. You never know we may even see a dance off again in centre ice”.
Fans can join in free of charge as long as you hold a valid match ticket for the game – saving you around £8! Skate hire will be available for only £2.50 for anyone who doesn’t own their own skates – just arrange your skate hire at the box office in the period breaks! For supporters attending the game who do have their own pair of skates, the post-match skate with the players is free of charge.
The Skate with the Players session will get underway after the Man of the match presentations and once the players have dropped their kit off into the dressing room and will last around 30 minutes.
There will no Player signing table this weekend.
We look forward to seeing you at the game and remember we’ll be on the look out for any budding Bison players of the future or even yesteryear.
