NIHL cup semi-final confirmed!

Swindon Wildcats are thrilled to announce that our National Cup Semi-Final home game will be played on Wednesday 14th February, at 7:30PM.




After topping our National Cup group and then dispatching the London Raiders by a mammoth 14-2 aggregate scoreline, we now find ourselves in the final four teams and will do battle with the Telford Tigers to try and qualify for the National Cup Final.




Similar to the quarter finals, the semi-final will be held over two legs with the winner on the aggreagate scoreline going through to the final. At this moment we are yet to confirm when the away leg in Telford will be but we will announce that through our social media channels as soon as we know.




The theme for the week will be known as Love Week with games falling on Valentines Day as well as a home game on the 17th against Streatham. The first game of the two will be branded ‘Let’s Stick Together’ and the game on Saturday 17th, which will be sponsored by Fig Offices, will be known as ‘For Your Ice Only’.




We are offering an exclusive Adult ticket deal for Wednesday 14th February, for all couples:

So upgrade to VIP and both guests get all of this for just £5! It’s too good to miss!




There will be plenty going on throughout love week, and we’ll be wearing our red jerseys, so we’ll be encouraging you all to #RedTheRink for both games by wearing as much red as you can! As well as this we’ll be running a Social Media Kiss-Cam Selfie competition. When you hear the song ‘It must be love’ played, by Madness, take a Kissing selfie, share it on Wildcats social media and you will be entered in to our prize draw. #CatsKissCam
