Following the Elite Ice Hockey League’s recent update that funding through the Winter Survival Package will be applicable to teams in England only, we would like to provide a short update to fans.
Steve Thornton, Head of Hockey, The Odyssey Trust said: “We are aware that funding for sport will soon be made available in Northern Ireland and we remain hopeful that ice hockey, as the largest indoor spectator sports here, will be catered for within this.
“We have longstanding and valued relationships with the Department for Communities and Sport NI and will continue to keep dialogue open as we explore all options available for funding that will support a return to ice hockey in Belfast.
“We will also continue to work with the EIHL Board to explore all potential scenarios and will provide an update as soon as we are in a position to do so. We would like to thank our fans for their patience and support.”
