As the pandemic continues to ravage ice hockey throughout the world the Scottish Ice Hockey Association decided enough is enough.

 
 
 
 

The Scottish Ice Hockey Association is extremely sad to announce that the season 2020-2021 will now be cancelled.

The pandemic has presented so many challenges and restrictions that it was felt that a full or part season could not be undertaken.

Chairman Tony Hand said “There are currently numerous rinks which remain closed and the timescale for re-opening them is unclear. Even if we were to get to a point where they could open it appears that fans would not be allowed in and as clubs are reliant on fans the clubs simply could not function.

In the long term it is our intention to play an extended 2021-2022 season as early as possible providing all rinks remain open during the summer”

This is more bad news for ice hockey in Great Britain after the Elite league (EIHL) cancelled its season a few months ago.
