Skate with the Players

As a bonus tonight, your Full 9 Yards sponsored Blackburn Hawks are delighted to be able to offer their fans the chance to skate with the players after the game.

Fans can join in free of charge as long as you hold a valid match ticket for tonight’s game. Skate hire will be available for £2.50 for the session – you can book your slot by going to the reception during the game or just go to the skate hire afterwards. For those who bring their own skates, the post match skate with the players is free of charge.

With Christmas just around the corner and with the tremendous support the fans have given us so far this season, we thought it was only right we gave something back.

Coach Duncombe said, “The support each week that our passionate fans create is second to none and we are delighted to be able to get close to the players they cheer on every week.”

The Skate with the Players session will get underway after the Man of the Match presentations and once the players have dropped their kit off in the dressing room and will last around 30 minutes. Due to this event their will be no Player signing this week.


We look forward to seeing you all at the game …
