Pandemic-induced price rises for Peterborough Phantoms ice hockey fans, but the new club owners also announce a campaign to reward loyalty
Peterborough Phantoms have increased their season ticket prices and match night admission prices because of inactivity caused by the Covid pandemic.
Early bird reductions for tickets purchased before May 31 are on offer. Fans can pay in instalments. Season tickets are on sale from 10am tomorrow (April 27) from www.gophantoms.co.uk.

Phantoms expect to return to action in August or September. They will again contest the National League.
Phantoms coach and co-owner Slava Koulikov said: “The last year has been incredibly challenging for so many. We’ve had to adapt as a club and we will need our supporters to adapt with us, as we look to bounce out of the pandemic in as strong a manner as we possibly can.
“But we remain so thankful for the way our fans continue to stick by the club despite facing challenges of their own.
“The excitement is building now as a return to action draws closer and the day in which the voices of supporters fill Planet Ice with that familiar match night atmosphere moves into view. The Phantoms will be back with a renewed optimism and a fresh ambition to achieve together with our fantastic supporters, who truly are the fabric of our club.”
The club is under new ownership this season with Jon Kynaston, Ian Offers and Nik Day joining Koulikov as co-owners.
They have launched a ‘Phantoms in our fibre’ campaign which includes early bird offers and special fan experience incentives such as prize draws to reward loyalty.
Later this summer, the club will release of a new leisurewear range of merchandise.
