Saturday was supposed to be the first home game for the Echo Cardiff Devils in their new, purpose-built, ice rink from Planet Ice in Cardiff Bay. Much delayed, and long anticipated the first home game, some 12 games into Cardiff’s season, and against Newcastle (or just Vipers as they’re now known) was going to be a classic. Everyone arrived OK, including the away fans from far oop North, only to be told that the game was off due to ‘unsafe ice’.
What a disaster!
This rink has taken ages to build, is well over due and then its grand opening delves into farce. Hopefully the rink will be ready for Wednesday’s home game against Manchester, and the Devils can finally get their new home, and their season, underway.
