MK Lightning announce first pre-season challenge fixtures

Date Posted:15/05/2018

MK LightningThe 2017-18 season may have only recently ended - but the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning can now reveal two of their pre-season challenge fixtures to get fans raring to go for the 2018-19 campaign. The Lightning will face Guildford Flames at Planet Ice MK Arena on Saturday 1 September at 7pm, then again in Guildford on Sunday 2 September.

Both teams made their Elite League debuts last autumn after many years competing at English Premier League level.  Lightning’s new Head Coach, Doug McKay, will aim to make his mark on the UK’s top flight at his first attempt, whilst Flames’ boss Paul Dixon will want to improve on a sixth place finish last year.

The two sides have long enjoyed an intense rivalry that is sure to continue into their second EIHL season, with both sides having points to prove.

Although these pre-season games are still almost four months away, that means supporters can save the date to make sure they’re at the MK Arena to roar on their team!

Ticket information will be released later this summer along with more signing news - fans can make sure they’re amongst the first to hear it all by following the club on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as to stay up to date with all this summer’s signing news.
