The Cardiff Devils are scheduled to play the Glasgow Clan on Saturday but under Scottish Government Covid protocol, they are required to stay in isolation for 10 days, which makes them unavailable for the 8th January in Cardiff.
Saturday’s scheduled home game is required to be played behind closed doors, and rather than switching opponents and creating 3 games in 3 nights scenario for one of the teams in the league, we are moving the home game to Wednesday and we will be playing the Manchester Storm.
Devils Managing Director Todd Kelman explained the change of plans:
“Originally, we were told that our 2 home games on December 27th and January 1st were required to be played behind closed doors, but this weekend’s game still falls into the initial 2 week period which started Boxing Day. So that means the 8th would be played behind closed doors as well.
“With Glasgow unable to play, we could shift another team into a weekend date, either Friday or Saturday, but since we cannot have fans and with teams already playing a congested schedule, we decided to play the Manchester Storm on Wednesday 5th January at 7:30pm.”
The game will be shown online via Cardiff Devils TV and all season ticket holders will have free access to watch it online.
If you have purchased tickets for the game on the 8th, you will receive an email sometime over the next week with match night ticket vouchers to redeem at a future game of your choice.
