The YKK sponsored Widnes Wild return to action this weekend in the first of a new three-way series of games in which they take on the Sheffield Scimitars and the Nottingham Lions.

They are at home to Nottingham this Saturday 10th April at Planet Ice Widnes in a 1.30pm face off and then travel to Sheffield on Sunday to play the Scimitars, starting at 5pm.

The Wild played both of those teams in the NIHL North Cup in recent weeks but ended up with a “won one, lost one” record against each side so all three teams involved will feel that there is still a point to prove.

The games are being played behind closed doors under strict safety protocols as part of the EIHA’s continuing “Return to Play” strategy.  As such no spectators are allowed into the venues to watch but, as with the NIHL North Cup games, they will all be live-streamed over the internet so there is no need for anybody to miss out on the action.

The full list of Wild fixtures for this series is:

  • 10th April: Home v Nottingham Lions – 1.30pm face off
  • 11th April: Away @ Sheffield Scimitars – 5pm face off
  • 24th April: Away @ Nottingham Lions – 7.45pm face off
  • 1st May: Away @ Sheffield Scimitars – 7pm face off
  • 2nd May: Home v Sheffield Scimitars – 1.30pm face off
  • 8th May: Home v Nottingham Lions – 1.30pm face off
  • 15th May: Away @ Nottingham Lions – 3.30pm face off
  • 16th May: Home v Sheffield 6.30pm – 6.30pm face off

The YKK sponsored Widnes Wild are at home this Saturday 10th April when they entertain the Nottingham Lions at Planet Ice Widnes – 1.30pm face off.

The game will be streamed online by BASN – and also covered on the Wild’s official Twitter feed.  The livestream is free to view but the Widnes club are inviting supporters to make a donation to the Runcorn-based Halton Haven Hospice.
