NIHL Spring Cup Fixtures announced

The Spring Cup begins this weekend

The EIHA and NIHL National Division clubs have announced the full list of fixtures for the NIHL Spring Cup, which begins this weekend.

The competition is due to last until the end of March with five clubs from the NIHL National League all taking part and each will play 12 games over the space over the next seven weekends.

Sheffield Steeldogs and Swindon Wildcats will begin the competition with a double header, a game each at home, before the others, Telford Tigers, Raiders and Bees all join in and take part.

Both teams competing this weekend have announced their rosters, with the others scheduled to do the same in the coming days as fans get ready to enjoy ice hockey after an 11 month absence, barring the three weekends in November when the NIHL ran their successful Streaming Series.

Games are being played behind closed doors but will all be able to watch on live stream, following the successful pilot of the platform from the games that took place in November.
