Join the fun as the Stars take to the ice
Oxford United are proud to be part of Sunday’s Oxfordshire United game at the Oxford City Stars.
The U’s and The Stars are teaming up once again to bring you a fun-packed evening of sport, as the Stars pull on a special one-off yellow and blue kit for the huge NIHL division 1 clash against London Raiders.
Admission is half price for Oxford United season ticket holders and supporters with a ticket stub from the Cheltenham game last weekend – that means entry is just £4 for adults and £2 for kids and concessions.
Oxford United players will be at the Oxford Ice Rink to cheer on their ice hockey counterparts in the must-win game for the Stars.
Oxfordshire United began 15 months ago when United supporters the Yellow Army decided to celebrate the close ties of the city’s two favourite men’s sports teams. They sponsored Stars defender and Oxford United fan Joe Oliver and created a banner with both club logos on and the words Oxfordshire United – a banner that can regularly be seen at games for both teams.
Oxford City Stars now play with the Oxfordshire United logo proudly emblazoned on the back of their shirts.
Stars head coach Darren Elliott, himself an Oxford United fan, said: “Everybody can’t wait for Sunday. Oxfordshire United was one of the best fixtures last season, and we’re all really excited about it again. There’s a great crossover between United fans and ours, and both sets of supporters are amazing… Sunday’s game is a great chance to celebrate the links between our clubs and fans!”
Oxford City Stars club Secretary Richard Carpenter said: “We’re really proud of the link with Oxford United – most of our players are Oxfordshire lads and United supporters, so it’s really important for them. It’s going to be a lot of fun on Sunday – everybody should get down to the rink and join in especially if you’re an Oxford United fan who has never watched an ice hockey match – it’s a fantastic evening of the most fast-paced, tense and brutal team sport you’ll watch… come along and you’ll be hooked, I promise.”
