More Wildcats 'Home Away from Home' fixtures following rink flooding

By Barrie Hudson - 10 October 2023


The Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats have confirmed two further 'home away from home' fixtures.

The moves are the latest following the severe flooding which has left them unable to use their home rink at the Link Centre.

On Sunday 22 October the Wildcats will host a ‘home’ game at Planet Ice Bristol, taking on the Bristol Pitbulls. The face-off will be at 7pm.

A spokesperson said: "Much like our last home game with MK, anyone with a Wildcats Season Ticket will have a seat secured in Bristol where we hope a shorter journey will see even more Wildcats fans make the trip!

"Ticket information will be available soon, and Season Ticket holders will need to email [email protected] to secure their seats.

"The Wildcats will be the home team, and between the club and the Swindon Wildcats Supporters Club we’ll be doing everything within our power to ensure it’s as close to a home game as possible.

"We’d like to take a moment to once again place on record our sincere thanks to Planet Ice for their continued support through our ongoing rink issues. 

"We’d also like to thank the Bristol Pitbulls for their support in changing this fixture to Bristol."

On Saturday 11 November, the Wildcats will host the Solway Sharks for what would have been their first visit to Swindon in the National League season.

The fixture will be played at the Vindico Arena, home of the Cardiff Devils, with a 7pm face-off.

As before, all season tickets will be valid for our fans who are able to make it to Cardiff. Streams will also be available for those who can’t make it. 

The spokesperson said: "With it being a Saturday evening, and no game on the Sunday, why not make a weekend of it and spend some time in the Welsh Capital!

"More information will be revealed in the coming weeks, but we’d like to place on record our thanks to John Donavan, Todd Kelman and the Cardiff Devils for their continued support at this time."
