The EIHA/NIHL have issued the following statement:
“The EIHA/NIHL had planned to deliver a number of events through April which are now postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
These NIHL Championship Series events are:
• NIHL National Final Four due to be held in Coventry on 17th and 18th April
• NIHL Division 1 Finals due to be held in Sheffield and Bracknell on 11th and 12th April
• NIHL Division 2 Finals due to be held in Widnes and Alexandra Palace on 4th and 5th April
Discussions are ongoing amongst the league and venues in regard to the next step for these events. Once a decision has been reached, information will then be sent to all ticket holders in regard to any rearranged dates or refunds.
We would ask at this time that you do not contact any of the venues for a refund while these provisions are made. Due to the truly unprecedented and unique circumstances faced, there is understandably a tremendous backlog of administrative work caused through the cancellation of numerous league, playoff and international fixtures, alongside other non-ice events.
Given this situation any refund process will inevitably take much longer than usual and we ask for patience whilst venues work hard to resolve issues and communicate with customers.
We assure you of our best intentions in resolving the issue and thank you for your patience and understanding in these testing times.”
