Swindon Wildcats Set To Learn 21/22 Season Fixtures

SWINDON WILDCATS will find out their fixtures for the 2021/22 season next Wednesday confirm NIHL. Read below to find out more including all the key dates for the upcoming season.

Following on from the announcement by Hull earlier this week that, due to ongoing repairs to the Hull Ice Arena, the Hull Pirates are unable to take their place in the NIHL National competition for the 2021/22 season, the NIHL National Owners Group would like to give thanks to Hull for everything they have done in trying to compete, and to place on record that Hull continues to be part of the NIHL National family, they will be missed, and we look forward to their return in the 2022/23 season when it arrives.
 
The Owners Group has now finalised the preliminary fixture list for the season, and revised structure to accommodate 9 teams. The revised format will see a total of 28 home fixtures plus pre-season and playoffs.
 
The key details are:

  • The conference structure is removed for season 2021/22
  • Teams will play each other a total of 6 times (3 Home, 3 Away) for a total of 48 league fixtures
  • There will be a 9 team cup competition prior to the league (with teams playing each other either home or away, but not both)
  • A second cup competition will also run similar to 2019/20, where the first meetings of teams will also count towards cup points
