UPDATE 4th September: Read the latest update here https://www.aiha.org.nz/nzihl-showdown-series-covid-19-update-4th-september-2020/
Dear Ticket Holder,
We are writing to you about the Government’s announcement yesterday 24th August, regarding the COVID-19 Alert Levels in Auckland.
As of writing, the Alert Level status in Auckland is as follows:
- Auckland to remain at Alert Level 3 until 11:59pm Sunday 30th August
- Auckland to move to Alert Level 2 on 12:01am Monday 31st August until 11:59pm Sunday 6th September
- During this time, a mass gathering limit of 10 people will be in place within Auckland
AIHA previously made the following changes to the NZIHL Showdown Series Schedule:
Thursday 13th August:
NZIHL Showdown Series Game 1 at Botany – POSTPONED – replacement date TBC
Saturday 22nd August:
NZIHL Showdown Series Game 2 at Avondale – POSTPONED – replacement date TBC
Saturday 29th August:
NZIHL Showdown Series Game 3 at Botany – POSTPONED – replacement date TBC
Saturday 5th September:
NZIHL Showdown Series Game 4 at Avondale – POSTPONED – replacement date TBC
Following yesterday’s announcement and the fact that an end date to restrictions on mass gatherings is not yet known or guaranteed, we are unable to provide the exact dates for when the NZIHL Showdown Series games will be rescheduled.
At this stage, provided Auckland has returned to a state in which mass gatherings are permitted, it is our intention to re-schedule the NZIHL Showdown Series games from late-September onward.
We are currently working hard on securing replacement dates for all four games and will communicate this shortly once we know these dates.
Any tickets you hold currently will remain valid for any rescheduled games.
We continue to thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. We are working hard to resume ice hockey as soon as we can do so safely, and will continue to provide updates as we can.
