Christmas with the Bison Supporting Naomi House & the Basingstoke Food Bank

This weekend sees the start of our Christmas games, when the Trane Basingstoke Bison welcome the Leeds Chiefs to the arena for our home game on Saturday 14th (Face off 6pm), and then host the Chiefs for their home game on Sunday 15th (Face off 5.30pm), this because the Leeds rink isn’t open as yet.

Both games this weekend and the home game next Sunday 22nd, will see the Bison wearing their special “Christmas jerseys and socks”
