The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms would like to announce their qualification into the NIHL National Cup. This follows our recent win over Sheffield Steeldogs which confirmed our place within the top four and gained us automatic qualification.
The other teams who have also gained qualification are:
The fourth and final spot is still up for grabs with Hull Pirates, Basingstoke Bison, Bracknell Bees, Sheffield Steeldogs and Raiders all competing for qualification.
The NIHL National Cup will be run differently from Cup Competitions previously with the top-seeded team being able to choose their opponent for the semi-finals. This means that whichever team finishes top of the standings will be able to pick from the remaining 3 teams, and the two teams that are left will play each other.
The Semi-final fixtures will be announced in due course and will consist of 1 home and 1 away game, the scores will roll over on aggregate across the 2 games and the winner overall will progress to the final. The home fixture for the NIHL National Cup will not be covered by season tickets, so season ticket holders will be charged for this game.
