NZIHL Showdown Series COVID-19 Update – 4th September 2020

By September 4, 2020No Comments

Dear Ticket Holder,

We are writing to you about the Government’s announcement today, 4th September, 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 “2.5” until at least Wednesday 16th September, 11:59pm.
    • During this time, a mass gathering limit of 10 people will be in place within Auckland
  • On Monday 14th September, the Government will meet to discuss changes to the Alert Levels.

Given the mass gathering restrictions currently in place, it is not yet possible to re-launch the NZIHL Showdown Series.

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

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.
