About coventry blaze
The Coventry Blaze are based in the West Midlands of Great Britain. The club competes in the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), the UK’s premier top-flight ice hockey league.
Ice hockey is the number-one attended indoor professional sport in the UK and overall it is the third largest winter spectator sport in the UK after football and rugby union.
The EIHL (founded in 2003) consists of ten teams representing all four Home Nations. The nine other clubs are the Belfast Giants, Glasgow Clan, Cardiff Devils, Dundee Stars, Fife Flyers, Guildford Flames, Manchester Storm, Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers.
The Blaze, four-time Elite League Champions, generally play once home and once away on Saturday and Sunday (between August and April), and on occasion mid-week.
Home games are played at the Skydome Arena, a 3,000 capacity (2,200 seats) multi-purpose arena in the city centre of Coventry.
The Skydome complex is home to a number of restaurants, bars, Odeon Cinema, gym and our title sponsor Genting Casino.
Off the ice, we run a successful community programme which involves working with local schools, charities and businesses.
