Premier Sports logo full res master

With the full co-operation of Premier Sports, I am proud to be able to post the dates and times of the LIVE broadcasts of Great Britain’s games at the 2013 IIHF Division 1 World Championships!

 

GAME 1 – SUNDAY 14TH APRIL

GREAT BRITAIN vs. HUNGARY @ 6:30PM

GAME 2 – MONDAY 15TH APRIL

KAZAKHSTAN vs. GREAT BRITAIN @ 3:00PM

GAME 3 – WEDNESDAY 17TH APRIL

ITALY vs. GREAT BRITAIN @ 3:00PM

GAME 4 – FRIDAY 19TH APRIL

JAPAN vs. GREAT BRITAIN @ 3:00PM

GAME 5 – SATURDAY 20TH APRIL

GREAT BRITAIN vs. KOREA @ 11:30AM

 

All times shown are GMT.

Premier Sports will also be broadcasting the IIHF World Championships for the Top Division from May 3rd-19th 2013.  Broadcast times will be posted as they become available.

Premier Sports is available on Sky Channel 428, for the price of £9.99 per month.  It is not currently available on Virgin Media, but that is something that they are working towards – as is an online stream, which will be available for the same price (or free if you are already a Sky subscriber) when released in the coming weeks.

I believe that this is a great opportunity for ice hockey in the UK – I don’t remember ESPN or Sky Sports ever being quite so willing to push the ice hockey part of their programming schedule, but Premier Sports really seem to have made an effort since picking up the NHL during the broadcast rights fiasco in 2011/12.

This is a fantastic opportunity to view some high quality ice hockey on the international stage, and I hope all of you who are able will put your full support behind Great Britain and Premier Sports – the more support we give, the more hockey we get!

 

 

Thanks to Premier Sports for their co-operation in allowing IceNationUK the use of their logo, and the posting of their broadcast times.
