The Stena Line Belfast Giants return to action with back-to-back home games this weekend at The SSE Arena. Friday sees the league leaders come to town with the Cardiff Devils needing only one win to clinch the Elite League title and Saturday night’s opponents are the Fife Flyers.
Two big crowds are expected at this weekends games and tickets are on sale NOW from the SSE Arena Box Office (028 9073 9074) or via the Ticketmaster website.
For anyone planning on redeeming Flexi Vouchers this weekend, we encourage you to make your way down to the Box Office well in advance of the face off time. Remember – sporting colours or tops are not permitted, except for Ice Hockey jerseys, in The SSE Arena.
With the Elite League title to be decided, St.Patrick’s Day jerseys, NHL merchandise sale, two important league games, cash prizes to be won, Fanzone and more – here is your Essential Guide to a GIANT weekend at The SSE Arena…
Devils Title Celebrations?
The Elite League title can be decided this Friday night in Belfast. A road win for the Cardiff Devils would see the Welsh side lift the Monteith Bowl for a second successive season, however the Giants will be desperate to avoid that happening in Belfast. Expect a loud night at The SSE Arena with plenty of Devils fans trying to cheer their team on to a big win and Belfast fans wanting a win to help the team move up the league and conference standings…and avoid Devils title celebrations!
The Giants will take to the ice on Saturday wearing one-off St.Patrick’s Day jerseys and all fans in attendance getting the chance to go home with their very own game worn jersey!
Saturday’s St.Patrick’s Day Shirt off the Back contest will have ALL players jerseys up for grabs. Raffle tickets will be on sale from doors open at 6pm until the end of the 2nd intermission for: £2 for 1, £5 for 5, £10 for 15 and £20 for 40.
The winning numbers will be drawn and announced during the third period on Saturday!
