EIHL launch initiative to combat early season closure.

EIHL launch initiative to combat early season closure.

Robert Newbolt22 Apr 2020Robert Newbolt»

The Eihl (UK) today set provisional dates for lans to offset, somewhat, the championship play offs being cancelled.


As many fans are aware, the EIHL have mooted for a while that plans have been finalised to launch next season with a two-day Magic 5 competition held in Nottingham where all ten clubs will play a meaningful derby game which will count towards total points in the end of season league table.

With last season’s Playoff finals cancelled, many fans have also given their support to the event by transferring their POFW tickets over to this exciting new event.

The EIHL have set a very provisional date of Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October 2020 for the Magic 5 weekend with the regular league and cup season starting the following week. The end of season Playoff Finals weekend will be pushed back to a provisional date of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th April 2021. All of these dates are provisional and subject to government restrictions. The EIHL and its 10 teams will be working towards them, although with the caveat that both an extension and an easing of current government restrictions may bring further changes to this in the coming months.

The ‘Magic 5’ weekend will consist of each team playing their nearest neighbour over the weekend with the added incentive of points won counting towards league standings. It is hoped this will make up. In a small way, for the loss of the play off weekend which would have resulted in a championship. The board have done this to try and recoup some revenue and to help out the fans as much as possible.
