At the Skydome Arena everyone is welcome and on Sunday 28th January we will promote that message by hosting a special Pride game vs. Glasgow Clan (5.30pm).
The fixture is part of a league wide initiative and we would love it if you could join us to celebrate inclusivity and diversity in our fantastic sport.
Call 02476630693 or visit the Skydome Arena Box Office.
On both Saturday away vs. Belfast Giants and at home vs. Glasgow, the Blaze players will wear specially designed Pride jerseys by Five-on-3.
There are a limited number of game worn Pride jerseys remaining to purchase via our online store.
A donation to Coventry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC) will be made from the profits of the jerseys.
If you have purchased a white Pride jersey, this will be worn in Belfast and can be collected from the FanHub from doors open (4.30pm) on Sunday.
The black home jerseys can be collected from the FanHub after the game vs. Clan.
The home jersey of #16 Kim Tallberg will be the shirt off the back raffle prize on the night of the game and #41 Johnny Curran’s away jersey is the prize in the online Booster Club raffle.
Tickets to win Curran’s away Pride jersey are available now via:
The raffle ends at 4pm on Sunday.
EIHL Pride Week
It will be the fourth season that Elite League has been able to celebrate pride across all ten arenas, with the first Pride Weekend taking place in 2019/20.
EIHL Media & Communications Manager Luke Fisher said,
“Our fans showed us at the Playoff Finals Weekend back in 2019 how important it is to them that our sport celebrates inclusion and diversity, which led to our first Pride Weekend in 2020. We made a very clear commitment then that we wanted to promote the message that ice hockey is a safe space for LGBTQ+ athletes and fans alike, and we have been proud to continue celebrating this message.”
“Every time we organise our Pride event, both ourselves and our partners are blown away by how much our fans support this initiative. We hope Pride 2024 will continue to show just how importantly our fans value this message in the sport of ice hockey”.
