Match-Night Programme

The Stampede includes 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.

Our 50/50 draw will once again be back in 2017, with one lucky winner each week taking home a big cash prize. Tickets cost just 1 and are available from our roving sellers and at the Booster Club table.

Shirt off the players back also returns, where one lucky supporter gets the chance to take home one of the Bison players game-worn jerseys. Derek Roehl's jersey is up for grabs this week and 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.

Throughout January, there will be a special flash sale on the merchandise table, with an item coming up at a very special price for just one week. Check out our Twitter feed later in the day to see what bargain you can grab this week.

We look forward to seeing you at the game!
