Sheffield to host NIHL North play-off weekend again

The top four sides from each of the NIHL North divisions will contest the Play-Off Finals Weekend at iceSheffield on 8th & 9th April.

This is the fourth year the league has held a play-off weekend and the second event to feature teams from both divisions at the same time.

Saturday 8th April will see four semi-finals take place at 10.30am, 1.30pm, 4.30pm and 7.30pm.

These will be 1st v 4th and 2nd v 3rd in each division and the order of play is decided by the higher seeds picking their preferred game time.

The Laider D2 final will be on the Sunday at 1.30pm, followed by the Moralee D1 final at 4.30pm.

The weekend will also feature an awards ceremony with each division choosing its best player, best young player and best coach. An award will also be made to the NIHL North Organisation of the Year.

Tickets for the six game extravaganza will be on sale from NIHL North clubs until 1st March. After that they will go on general sale – details will be published nearer the time how to order.

Weekend tickets are priced at £36.00 for adults and £18.00 for children (15 & under) – there are no day tickets or other concession prices.

Individual clubs will advise their supporters how to order tickets direct from their respective clubs – check club websites and social media for information.

NIHL North chairman Charles Dacres said: “This promises to be another fantastic event to showcase the very best of NIHL hockey in the North.

“Last year was the first joint play-off weekend and we had practically a full arena for all six games, and the hockey didn’t let the fans down.

“The standard in both leagues continues to rise so when we get to the final four in Moralee and Laidler everyone in the rink is in for something really special.

“I’d urge supporters from all NIHL North clubs to come along and enjoy a fabulous occasion – six games of hockey and a rink full of passionate fans.”
