Ice Arena Wales to host Challenge Cup Final

Ice Arena Wales has been chosen as the host venue for the 2017 Elite League Challenge Cup Final, with the game scheduled to take place on Sunday 5th March.

Sheffield Arena hosted the event in 2015 and 2016, following the change to a one game final showdown.

The decision to stage one of the league’s marquee events in Cardiff was made at the recent board meeting.

Cardiff Devils’ Managing Director Todd Kelman said: “We proposed to the league some time ago that rather than hosting the game in Sheffield every year, why not allow teams to bid for it.

“At the last board meeting we put in a bid for it, and we got it. But I’m sure we could see it in maybe Belfast or Braehead in the future.”

The face-off time and details of how to book tickets will be confirmed by the Elite League at a later date.
