Missing that Oxford v Swindon Rivalry?


If you’re missing the opportunity to see a team from Oxford beat a team from the wrong end of the A420, then worry no more.

Oxford City Stars ‘welcome’ Swindon Wildcats 2 to Oxpens Road on Sunday 25th February at 6:15pm for a NIHL South 2 match, and Oxford United Season Ticket Holders and OxVox Members can get half price entry to the game. Just bring your OUFC season ticket or OxVox membership card with you when you get your tickets.

To celebrate the occasion Oxford United legend James Constable will be attending the match as the Stars Guest of Honour.

Beano, as he is fondly known, is one of Oxford United’s all time highest goal scorers and scored both goals as the U’s beat Swindon 2-1 in 2011 to win at the County Ground.

He regularly watched the Stars when he played for United.

James said: “I’m looking to coming back and seeing everyone again for what should be a great occasion.”

The City Stars are top of the NIHL division 2 South table and are hoping for another big attendance at Oxpens – after last weekend’s 1,000 sell-out crowd.

As part of the Oxfordshire United partnership members of the Oxford United in the Community team will also attend the match, as guests of the Stars.

Face off is at 6.15pm on February 25th. United and city season ticket holders can take advantage of the offer by presenting their season tickets at the turnstile and Oxvox members by showing their membership card.

If you’ve never been to an ice hockey match before prepare yourself for a evening of excitement. “Hustle, Hit and Never Quit”.
