Swindon ice hockey team The Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats will wear a special jersey this month in celebration of Pride Week.

The EIHA Pride Week will be held between the January 20 and 29.

A Wildcats statement said: “Hockey is for everyone, and we’ll be hosting our official Pride Night on January 28 against the Bees IHC. The exclusive jerseys will also be worn against Sheffield Steeldogs on Saturday, January 14 and against the Hull Seahawks on Saturday, January 21.

“We expect these jerseys to be very popular and therefore will be splitting how you can get your hands on one.”

Around half of the shirts will be up for grabs in a jersey auction on the Wildcats website, which will start on Monday, January 9, and end on Wednesday, February 1.

The opening bid is set at £75 and fans will be able to collect their jerseys on Saturday, February 4, in Studio 1 after the game and get a photo with their player.

The club say that this will allow everyone to try and get their hands on them and add to their jersey collection.
