Belfast Giants
The Stena Line Belfast Giants will begin their Elite League title defence in Dundee on Friday 5th September before returning to Belfast for their opening home weekend with games against Edinburgh and Braehead at the Odyssey Arena on Friday 12th September and Saturday 13th September respectively.

The Giants will once again compete in the Erhardt Conference along with the Cardiff Devils, Coventry Blaze, Nottingham Panthers and Sheffield Steelers and will look to win the Conference for a third season in-a-row following triumphs in the 2012/13 season and last season when Belfast clinched the Conference by a record breaking 17 point margin.

Belfast fans will once again be treated to ‘double-header’ weekends at the Odyssey Arena with Cardiff (3rd/4th October), Coventry (19th/20th December), Sheffield (2nd/3rd January) and Nottingham (14th/15th March) all visiting Northern Ireland for two games on successive nights. Indeed, the Cardiff Devils ‘double-header’ will see the return of former General Manager Todd Kelman for his first Elite League games in Belfast following 14 seasons with the Giants.

Belfast will face the other sides in the Erhardt Conference four times at home and four times away, while meeting Gardiner Conference teams Braehead, Dundee, Edinburgh and Fife twice at home and twice away for a 52-game season.

The Challenge Cup will remain as two groups of five, followed by two-legged quarter-finals and semi-finals, with a stand-alone final taking place at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Sunday 8th March 2015.

Challenge Cup Group A consists of the Stena Line Belfast Giants, Braehead, Dundee, Edinburgh and Fife. Group B is made up of Cardiff, Coventry, Hull, Nottingham and Sheffield.

 

The Giants will complete the regular season with games against the Coventry Blaze at home and Fife Flyers away on Friday 20th March and Saturday 21st March respectively, with the playoffs commencing the following week. Playoff finals weekend will take place at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th April 2015.

“I really like our schedule this season,” said Steve Thornton. “The Odyssey Arena has set aside plenty key dates for us this season. We are hosting double headers for the other Erhardt Conference teams at at the Odyssey and have done our best to double up road games when possible to make our away travel easier on the team and hopefully give Giants fans more choice for away trips.”

“For sure we will be running buses to every Giants game in Braehead this season and are looking into which away weekends we can organise travel packages for our fans so anyone looking to book away weekends should keep an eye on our website over the next week to see what offers come up.”
