Sharks Face EPL Opposition In Cup Competition
We are now also in a position to tell you that the Northern Cup, won for the last three seasons by the Sharks, will not take place this season. Thankfully it has been replaced by the mouth watering prospect of playing no less then four EPL clubs in competitive action.
The English Challenge Cup, as it is to be known, will feature Manchester Pheonix, Peterborough Phantoms, Sheffield Steeldogs and Telford Tigers from the English Premier League together with Billingham Stars, Blackburn Hawks and ourselves from the NIHL. Each team will play each other once home and once away in a mini-league format.
These fixtures are included in our "early bird" season ticket offers and single game tickets will be at our normal 2014-15 prices (see below).
