We have programme sellers located around the Arena – look out for them upon your arrival – hopefully they will find you.

Face-off is at 4.00pm

But the show starts just before – look to the BIG screen.

Face-off (Kick-Off if it’s your first game with us) is at 4pm but before that the lights go down and the big screen gets you stamping your feet and clapping your hands – the Steelers are about to arrive on the ice.

The Game – It’s a Game of 3 Periods (thirds)


Three periods of play with a 15-minute break in between each period.

Each period is 20 minutes long (of actual playing time) the big screen clock will show you how long is left.

50-50 Draw Tickets – Price just £1 per ticket.

 Tickets Just £1

You will hear reference to the 50-50 draw all night. When you arrive at the arena we will have sellers out and about – don’t worry you will hear them!

The more tickets you buy the bigger the prize. At the end of the night we count the tickets up, half the money taken is your prize.

So if we sell 2000 tickets the cash prize you walk home with is £1000

Tickets are on sale before the game and in the two-period breaks. The draw takes place live on the big screen 5 minutes into the 3rd period. If you win a player will present you your cash on the ice at the end of the game


Shirt Off Your Back Raffle

If your ticket is the lucky winner then you select the player shirt you want presented to you.

Our sellers will be out and about selling before the game and in the two period breaks.

This presentation takes place on the ice at the end of the game – you get to go home with a game worn shirt – WARNING – it will stink but you will love it.

Home Time – but before you go we have the “Eddy”

A game normally takes between 2 hours 15 minutes and 2 hours 30 minutes. So by 6.30pm, you will be heading home.

If the Steelers win, and we hope they do, we have a special presentation that we want you to stick around for – we call it “The Eddy” after one of our former players who started the tradition.

The man of the match will do a lap of honour and normally they throw a little something extra in – you will love it.
