TICKETS NOW ON SALE FOR GB’S GAMES AGAINST LITHUANIA

Tickets are now on sale for Great Britain’s two international challenge games with Lithuania next year.

The two sides go head-to-head in Planet Ice Arena Milton Keynes on Saturday 14th April 2018 with a 7pm face-off.

They also meet the following day on Sunday 15th April in Coventry’s Skydome Arena at 5:15pm.

The matches are part of their preparations for the World Championship tournaments later that month.

GB will play in World Championship Division 1 Group A and face hosts Hungary, along with Italy, Kazakhstan, Poland and Slovenia, for their first return to ice hockey’s second tier since 2013.

Lithuania are hosting the Division 1 Group B tournament in Kaunas.

GB won the most recent meeting between the two sides with a 5-2 victory over Lithuania on their way to promotion from Division 1 Group B last season in Belfast, with Colin Shields, Jonathan Phillips, Evan Mosey, Robert Farmer and Ben O’Connor scoring the goals.

Great Britain general manager, Andy Buxton, said: “We have had some great battles with Lithuania over the last few years and I am sure these two games will be no different.

“It was a fantastic 2017 for GB with the unforgettable promotion in Belfast back to the second tier.

“The games against Lithuania will form part of an extensive training camp ahead of what will be a tough World Championship.

“This is a great chance to give the GB boys a special send-off ahead of the tournament in Hungary.”
