1) DOUBLE THE FUN - what’s better than one hockey game? Two hockey games of course. We’re kicking of our EIHL season with back to back home games. Saturday night we’re welcoming the Guildford Flames for our first Challenge Cup game this season and then Sunday it’s our first league game against the Glasgow Clan.
2) BACK IN BLACK - On Saturday night we’re wearing our black Challenge Cup Jerseys for the first time and the new black helmets modelled here by Mark Louis.
3) SHIRT OFF HIS BACK - Speaking of Mark Louis, you could be going home with the black jersey off his back on Saturday night in our SOHB raffle. If red is more your colour, on Sunday you could be the lucky winner going home with a red game worn Josh Batch jersey.
4) RAISE (IT TO) THE ROOF - On Sunday night we're raising our Playoff Championship banner to the rafters at the Viola Arena as we celebrate our 2018 playoff victory. CLICK HERE to watch the highlights of that game to get in the mood and just because you can never watch that Fournier game winner too many times.
5) MO IS BACK !! We are thrilled to welcome the man that captained the Devils last season and lifted the Playoff Championship Trophy, Jake Morissette, back to the Viola Arena on Sunday night to be a part of the banner raising.
6) VISIT CARDIFF'S BRAND NEW CHUCK A PUCK - We have teamed up with Visit Cardiff to make chuck-a-puck even more exciting! Now, if you're the lucky winner, you can choose from a range of great prizes worth over £100 each. With family days out to hotel stays and spa days there really is something for everyone! Plus, that's not all... when you collect your prize on the evening you will now also have your photo taken with a Devils player of your choice on the ice after the game.

You have to be in it to win it so don't forget to get a puck to chuck.
One of the prizes is a £100 voucher for Cardiff Market - that's a lot of welshcakes. Thumbs up from Mike McNamee and speaking of...
7) MEET MIKE - We are bringing back the posters for our post-game signings designed and drawn by our favourite local tattoo artist StuBob James.First up is our new #89. Get a poster, signature and selfie with McNamee at the top of block 3 after the game on Sunday.
8) 50/50 RAFFLE - as always, 50% of the takings go in your pocket and the more you buy the bigger the prize!
9) SEASON TICKETS - Don't forget BOTH games this weekend are covered by your season ticket. If you still haven't collected your season ticket card yet, you can do so from reception before the game (Remember to bring ID for all the cards you're collecting).
10) GET YER SKATES ON - Postgame skate is immediately after the game on the main pad, so if you have skates it's free and if you need to hire skates, just go to reception after the game.
11) PARKING - The Toys R Us carpark & WIlcox House will both be open Saturday and Sunday. From 5:00pm on Saturday and 4:00pm on Sunday and close around 2 hours after the match. The cost to park is £3 in either location and there is 150 spots in Wilcox House and nearly 300 spaces in the Toys R US carpark.
Cardiff Council have asked us to remind our fans that if you park anywhere on grass or in the visitor carpark of the residential area next door at Cardiff Pointe, that you will be ticketed and/or towed.
