The English Premier League sides have finally announced their fixtures for the forthcoming season.
The league season will get underway on the 15th September but most sides are announcing preseason games for the weekend before. The opening weekend of the league season sees defending champions the Guildford Flames host last season’s bottom side the Telford Tigers.
At the opposite end of the season the league finishes on the 24th March with playoff quarter finals the weekend after and the playoff finals at Coventry take place a week later on the 6th and 7th April. On that last weekend the Guildford Flames face the Slough Jets on the last day in what could be a title decider for both sides whilst Manchester Phoenix and the Sheffield Steeldogs also meet on the last weekend of the season.
Other notable dates will be the 4th November when there could be fireworks on and off the ice as last seasons surprise package the Sheffield Steeldogs face roses rivals the Manchester Phoenix. Also the 14thOctober when the Telford Tigers have there home opener in their refurbished Telford Ice Rink.
