GET READY, THE 2019-20 FIXTURES NOW RELEASED

The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms can’t wait to get the season started and with it only being just under 6 weeks before the Phantoms hit the ice, we can now confirm our 2019/20 schedule.

Phantoms will be kick-starting the new hockey season off with the previously advertised pre-season friendlies against Hull Pirates on the 7th & 8th of September, followed by the weekend after (14th & 15th), when the Phantoms go into battle with the Basingstoke Bison for the first trophy of the season ‘The Billy Glover Cup’.

The league and cup will commence for the Phantoms with a doubleheader weekend against the Bracknell Bees on Saturday 21st September, away at the John Nike Arena and home on Sunday 22nd, face off 5.30PM. The cup format means every first league game played, home and away against all teams will count towards the National Cup.

The NIHL National teams will be split into two conferences for the regular season.

North

Telford Tigers, MK Lightning, Sheffield Steeldogs, Hull Pirates and Leeds Chiefs

South

Swindon Wildcats, Bracknell Bees, Basingstoke Bison, London Raiders and ourselves the Peterborough Phantoms

Teams will play their own conference four home and four away, while they will face the other conference twice home and twice away. At the end of the regular season, the top eight teams from the overall standings will qualify for the play-offs.
