Professional ice hockey has been played in the UK since the 1930s and the Great Britain team won the Olympic gold medal in 1936. Ice hockey is now the number-one attended indoor professional sport in the UK and overall it is the third largest winter spectator sport in the UK after football and rugby union. Unique from many ice hockey leagues around the world, the League Championship is generally seen as the major goal to all Elite League clubs. This often takes players participating in the UK for the first time some time to get used to.

The reason for this, is that the playoffs do not follow a typical ‘best-of’ series format. This is in large part due to a lack of available ice time at short notice, particularly for the arena clubs.

The top eight in the Elite League standings qualify for the playoffs with a quarter-final home/away tie being played over two-legs. The team with the highest aggregate score progresses to the finals weekend.

The playoff weekend, held in Nottingham is a unique experience for many players. Supporters of all teams come together to create a special atmosphere as the final four go head-to-head with both semi-finals played on the Saturday, the winners of each game progressing to the grand-final on the Sunday. The single-game knock-out format being similar to the Memorial Cup.

Whilst a short four-game playoff format, it’s an unforgettable experience to play at the final-four weekend, and an unbelievable feeling for players lucky enough to lift the trophy in front of up to 10,000 supporters.
