It is with regret that the Bristol Honda Pitbulls have to announce the postponement of this Saturday’s (18th December) home game against Streatham due to a significant COVID-19 outbreak in the Streatham roster. Guildford Phoenix have informed us of their intention to travel to Bristol for Sunday’s Division 2 game, offering an option for anyone still keen to watch some ice hockey before the Xmas break.

All advanced tickets that have been purchased for the game will be valid for the rescheduled game, once a new date has been set. Anyone seeking a refund should contact Planet Ice Bristol.

We are deeply disappointed to have needed to cancel the game at such late notice. We did attempt to find an alternative team to play given the number of outstanding games in our fixtures list. However, Streatham are not the only team who are finding this new wave of COVID-19 having a devastating effect on their dressing room and so we have been left with no other alternatives.

We trust that everyone understands the need for both clubs to have taken this decision and join us in wishing all those at Streatham a speedy and full recovery.

For anyone who has purchased merchandise that they are still waiting to collect, they will be available from All Star Hockey Shop in the rink foyer all day Saturday. Purchased merchandise will also be available for collection during the Guildford game, even for those who do not intend to stay and watch the game.

Anyone who has asked for delivery will receive their items over the weekend.
