Long Description:

The Peterborough Phantoms play their home games at the Peterborough Arena.

The Arena has a capacity of 1,500 supporters, with 1025 seating and 475 standing. This excludes the Hospitality Boxes.

The Arena also has a fully licensed bar, cafe and numerous Hot and Cold vending machines. There is also a Hockey shop at the rink.

The Cross Keys Homes sponsored Peterborough Phantoms face a massive game on Sunday against the Milton Keynes Lightning, following Saturday evenings Overtime win at the Thunderdome.

The win takes the Phantoms level with Guildford at the top of the table, with 4 games in hand, and leaves the Lightning still wondering what they need to do to beat the Phantoms. A feisty game on Saturday looks likely to carry forward to Sundays game, with the same officials in charge.

On Sunday the Phantoms will be holding their annual AIR THE BEAR promotion. Fans of both teams are asked to bring cuddly toys to Sunday's game, to be thrown onto the ice when their team socres their first goal. Please ensure the toys are wrapped in plastic bags, and bears hate to get wet !

Sunday will also feature Euan King's shirt in 'Shirt Off Your Back' and the GB Under 20's Silver medal winner will be signing autographs after the game, so you can have your photo taken with Euan and his Medal from the Under 20 World Championships which were held last week in Northern Spain.

Doors open at 4.30 on Sunday, with the game facing off at 5.30. A large crowd is expected, so fans are advised to arrive early.
