Play-off quarter-final home leg will be on weekend of April 1st/2nd
The Elite League standings are still in a state of flux as the final weekends draw close. The standings will determine who plays who, and when, in the end of season play-off quarter-finals. The top eight teams make the play-offs and that already includes the GMB Nottingham Panthers. The match-ups are set on the basis of one versus eight, two versus seven, three versus six and four versus five. The league winners take first seed and the winner of the other conference (Gardiner Conference this year) is automatically seeded second. The higher seed can choose whether to play the first or second leg of the aggregate-score two-match series at home. We’re keeping an eye on the way the standings are developing but the likely opponents have indicated different preferred options on dates so we will have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime the box office is getting set up to cope with the home leg on EITHER the Saturday OR the Sunday of the quarter-finals weekend on April 1st and 2nd. We’ll make more announcements as soon as we know, in the meantime please make a note in your diaries of the weekend of April 1st and 2nd. It’s going to be another big weekend for the GMB Nottingham Panthers!
