As the festive season approaches, Telford Tigers fans are in for a treat with two exciting events lined up in December. The annual Teddy Toss and Skate with the Players promise to bring the community together for a unique blend of hockey, goodwill, and fan interaction.
1. The Annual Teddy Toss: Spreading Cheer On and Off the Ice
The Annual Teddy Toss weekend has become a beloved tradition for Telford Tigers fans. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December. The rules of the Teddy Toss are simple but heartwarming. As the first Tigers goal is scored, fans throw their teddy bears onto the ice.
But the true magic lies in the purpose behind the event. All teddy bears collected during the toss are then donated to Children’s Ward at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford bringing warmth and comfort to children in need.
- Please only donate new, clean soft teddy bears or toys.
- Make sure your teddy bear is securely wrapped/tied in a plastic bag.
- When Hexagon Telford Tigers score their first goal… Toss your Teddy!
Fans will have two opportunities to take part in the Teddy Toss across Telford Tigers 1 and Telford Tigers 2 fixtures.
Saturday 2nd December
Telford Tigers 1 vs Bees IHC
Sunday 3rd December
Telford Tigers 2 vs Altrincham Aces
The last few Teddy Bear Toss events have been an enormous success, having seen a total of over one thousand plush toys thrown onto the ice from both home and away supporters, and the club hopes to achieve the same again this year.
2. Skate with the Players: A Chance to Connect with the Team
The week following the heartwarming Teddy Toss, fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with their favourite Tigers players during the Skate with the Players event. This family-friendly gathering is scheduled for Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December following each Telford Tigers fixture.
The event is not exclusive to seasoned skaters; fans of all skill levels are welcome. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just finding your ice legs, this is an exciting opportunity to share the ice with Telford Tigers while enjoying a fun-filled evening.
Telford Ice Rink will provide free skate hire to all Telford Tigers fans who attend each fixture.
Saturday 9th December
Telford Tigers 2 vs Billingham Buccaneers
Sunday 10th December
Telford Tigers 1 vs Peterborough Phantoms
In addition to the skating session, there will be opportunities for autographs, selfies, and a Q&A session with the players.
Make sure to mark these dates on your calendar to not miss out on a December to remember with Hexagon Telford Tigers. We look forward to you joining us in celebrating the season of giving, goodwill, and great hockey.
