SWINDON Wildcats will be doing their part to mark Remembrance Day this weekend by offering military discount for their home game against Peterborough Phantoms on Saturday.

Supporters with a military ID can purchase rink-side standing tickets for just £10 per adult and £4 for children.

On the ice, the Cats will wear a limited-edition camo-style Remembrance jersey.

The jerseys, which were also worn during last weekend’s home match against Raiders, will be auctioned off after the game.

Mayor of Swindon, Kevin Parry, will be the guest of honour at the game and perform a ceremonial puck drop, with The Voice Kids star Phoebe Maddison will sing the national anthem.

The evening has been given extra support through sponsorship from digital marketing agency Smarter Media.

A Wildcats statement read: “We will be offering a military discount whereby anyone with a military ID card will be able to come and watch the game at a discounted price of £10 per adult and £4 per child, valid for rink-side standing tickets.

“You can purchase these tickets in the Wildcat Sports Shop on the night or online in advance, but you must provide a valid military ID card on the night or entry will be refused.

“Throughout the game on November 9, we will have collection buckets being passed around the balcony and rink side by military personnel as well as local Royal British Legion volunteers, all the money raised during the collection will be going to the Royal British Legion – a charity that provides lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.

“Our limited-edition jerseys won the fan poll that we ran a few weeks back, making the Remembrance Camo Design the fan favourite for this season’s themed shirt.

“We will be auctioning the shirts off and fans will be able to get their hands on one of these one-of-a-kind jerseys by placing bids up on the first-floor concourse.

“Similar to our end-of-season auction, a poster for each player will be on the wall opposite the Coffee Corner area on the first floor of the Better Link Centre, so just bid an amount with your name and number for your chance to win.”
