Before you visit Silver Blades Widnes, we would like to give you an give you an idea of what to expect from your first time watching the RTL Widnes Wild.

Buying tickets to watch the RTL Widnes Wild couldn’t be easier and our friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand to help with anything they can.

Simply enter the ice rink via the main entrance (next to Nandos) and pay for your tickets at the reception. Entrance to the rink is 30 minutes before face-off. Once you have collected your tickets you will be guided to the seating area by a steward.

Ice hockey is fast-paced and physical with teams having up to 22 players with six players on the ice at any time; one goalie, and five players who skate up and down the ice trying to take the puck and score a goal against the opposing team.  The game is divided into three, twenty minutes periods and if there is a draw after the three periods then there will be five minutes of sudden death overtime, followed by penalties if necessary.

The ice rink is dry but can be cold so please dress appropriately.   A brief guide to the rules can be found here.

  • Adults £7.00
  • Concessions £4.00
  • Widnes Academy players are free when accompanied by a paying adult.
