In yesterday’s government update (June 23) we did not get the go-ahead for indoor facilities such as ice rinks to reopen as was initially advised by DCMS.
We will therefore remain in Phase 1 of our ‘Return to Play’ plan for the foreseeable future until rinks are able to reopen.
The EIHA are working alongside other sporting bodies as well as Sport England to lobby the government for the green light to be given as soon as possible and for guidance to be published to enable us all to prepare accordingly.
As a governing body we are also feeding into Sport England as they coordinate guidance for team sports where contact is part of the game.
We will update everyone as soon as the position changes, and we thank you for your continued patience.
