EIHL CONFIRM RETURN OF PRIDE WEEK FOR 2021-22 SEASON

The Premier Sports Elite League have confirmed that Pride will return this season with a whole week of celebrations across the league in January 2022.

Pride Week will take place from 8th to 15th January 2022, during which each of the league’s 10 teams will organise their own Pride Night at a home game.

“We made a very clear commitment during the 2019-20 season that we wanted to promote the message that ice hockey is a safe space for LGBTQ+ athletes and fans alike,” said EIHL Media Manager Luke Fisher.

“In January 2021 we could only celebrate this online, but we are incredibly excited to celebrate Pride Week in 2022 with our fans in arenas again.

“We know that hockey fans are special and ours showed what an incredible group they are during Pride Weekend 2020.”
