Following a conference call this morning with the participating teams, the IIHF have confirmed the following (see below) with regards to the Continental Cup 2021.
Please note: Do NOT make any travel arrangements in advance of this trip.
Sheffield Steelers will face a trip to Asiago in Italy in Round 2 of the 2021 IIHF continental Cup, subject to Government restrictions.
The Steelers have been drawn into Group E of this season’s adapted format alongside:
- Asiago Hockey (Italy – hosts)
- Team TBD from Ukraine
- Winner of Group B (Crvena Zvezda Belgrade, Mladost Zagreb, Buz Beykoz Istanbul or Irbis-Skate Sofia)
The 2021 event format has been changed in that there are now four groups in the Semi-Final stage, with only the group winners progressing to the Final. Previously, two teams from two groups made it to the final four.
The Semi-Finals are scheduled to take place from 13-15 November.
Fans are urged NOT to make travel arrangements for this event.
