8 Reasons you should be at Saturdays game!

Read why Saturdays game is one not to be missed!


The festive period is well and truly upon us at the Swindon Wildcats. This Saturday we return to home ice to take on the Cardiff Fire, in an important league fixture for us. Not only is it our last home game before Christmas, it is also our Teddy Bear Toss game! Make sure you get your tickets to what promises to be a very festive evening at the Better Link Centre!


1. Christmas Jerseys – Last Saturday we showed off our 2017 Christmas jerseys and they went down a storm! We’ll be wearing them again this weekend and remember, for £2 a ticket you can be in with a chance of winning any one of the team shirts on New Year’s Day!


2. Wessex Male Choir – We’re going to be joined by the Wessex Male Choir on Saturday, who will be filling out the Better Link Centre with festive music and carols, throughout the evening. Be sure to catch them on the concourse during the period breaks and keep an eye out for one of the Choir who will be singing the National Anthem!


3. Teddy Bear Toss – We’ve already mentioned it once, but it’s our Teddy Bear Toss on Saturday as well! The rules are straightforward. When we score our first goal of the game throw your teddies on the ice as quickly as you can! The more teddies the better! They’ll all be donated to the fantastic Wiltshire Tree House organisation!

4. Toms Rutkis – Toms is back in action for us this weekend! With Aaron Nell, Jordan Kelsall and Ollie Stone all away the coach has recruited Toms back into our line-up for the crucial league double header. You’ll be able to meet Toms at the signing table after the game on Saturday!


5. 50/50 – You’ve all been a fan of our new 50/50 deals and as they’re running again this weekend you’d be mad not to buy a few tickets (or even a few books). Let’s make someone a lot richer as we approach the Christmas rush!


6. Ryan Aldridge – Remember the days where local legend Ryan Aldridge was barking instructions to his players from the Cats home bench? Miss them? Well, for one weekend only he’ll be back on the bench for your Wildcats. With Aaron being away with the GB U20s Ryan will take control of the team this weekend. Be sure to give him a mighty roar on Saturday night!


7. In The Lair – The new programme feature is becoming a highlight of game day, this week we spoke to Sam Bullas about life with the Wildcats and about some exciting Community and Academy news. As an extra treat TWO programmes will be signed by Sam himself so buy yours on match night and be in with a chance of an exclusive programme!


8. Christmas – It’s the last home game before Christmas. The shopping can wait for one more week, the presents will still be for sale the weekend after. The most important thing you need to buy this week is your game tickets, everything else can wait until our weekend off!
