Match-Night Programme

The Stampede' this week is a double-header, which will also include all the information you need for the game against the Peterborough Phantoms. Anthony Russell and Mark Denholm take their unique look across the sport, whilst there is all the team previews you need, courtesy of Graham Merry from the Basingstoke Gazette. Unfortunately, there is no pull out posters in this edition of the programme, meaning there will be NO signing table during the festive period.

Tonight, there will be just one 50/50 draw - but it's the big one as our Christmas 50/50 comes to its conclusion. Tickets have been sold throughout December, and our prize fund already stands at over 500! It's certainly something to bring festive cheer! Tickets will cost just 2 from our sellers so be in it to win it.

Shirt off the players back returns, where one lucky supporter gets the chance to take home one of the Bison players game-worn jerseys. Tickets cost just 1 and are available to buy from the Booster Club table.

Chuck-a-Puck is also making its glorious return, with a fantastic prize courtesy of our friends at Zizzi's. For just 1, you have the chance to win four main meals and a bottle of house wine - just grab your puck, give it a chuck and see if you will end up closest to the centre of the rink.

You can also enter our Chuck-a-duck contest too, thanks to our great sponsors at Design by Detail - a great bunch of sweets on offer to the winner there.
