The Gold Coast Blue Tongues will play two of their regular season home games at a different home rink this season, coming to an agreement with the Southern Stars Ice Hockey Club to play two games at the Acacia Ridge rink in South West Brisbane.
The two games relocated are both Sunday games, the first versus the Canberra Knights on the 2nd of May, and the second versus the Melbourne Ice on the 11th of July.
Blue Tongues GM said on the BT website that he felt the hockey fans in Brisbane will embrace the return of the Blue Tongues to the Greater Brisbane area.
"The Club feels we are in a position now to spread the opportunity for people in Logan and Brisbane to see the Blue Tongues live in their backyard."
Acacia Ridge is a full olympic-sized rink, 60 m long and 30 m wide. Seating is equal or marginally larger in capacity to that at their home ice at Bundall, on the Gold Coast.
