Ice Hockey UK announces new Sheffield HQ

Ice Hockey UK (IHUK), the national governing body of ice hockey in the United Kingdom, has announced its new home as the Landing Pad at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, reinforcing the city’s thriving ice sports scene.

IHUK is set to join the esteemed ice sports community already based at the Park, with British Ice Skating stationed at the English Institute of Sport Sheffield and Elite League side Sheffield Steelers playing at the Utilita Arena Sheffield, as well as England Ice Hockey located at iceSheffield.

This convergence of ice-centric organisations not only underscores Sheffield’s status as a premier destination for all things ice-related, but also sets the stage for collaborative ventures and an enhanced spectator experience.

IHUK Chief Executive, Henry Staelens, said: “We’re thrilled to announce the relocation of Ice Hockey UK to Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. This move symbolises our commitment to advancing the sport of ice hockey and creating a lasting impact on the community.

“The facilities at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park are second to none and we are excited about the prospects this move brings for our organisation and the sport as a whole.”

Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park has become an established focal point for sports, health and innovation since its inception. Other incumbents at Landing Pad include Barnsley Women’s FC, Cricket Arena, Reyt and, most recently, Medilink North, solidifying Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park’s status as a hub for innovation and excellence across the health, sport and wellbeing sectors.

Landing Pad, which is located in the Community Stadium, is the first purpose-built serviced office space at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. Delivered by Scarborough Group International as part of its vision for the next phase of development at the Park, Landing Pad offers start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs in the health, sports and wellbeing sectors modern and collaborative workspaces designed to facilitate innovation and networking. The state-of-the-art facility is an ideal environment for businesses looking to thrive in a dynamic and supportive ecosystem.

Rachel Vickers, senior commercial manager at Scarborough Group International, said: “The relocation of a national governing body which oversees the UK’s biggest indoor sport and fastest-growing winter sport is another major boost for Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park and, in particular, Landing Pad which is already home to several other sports-related occupiers including Barnsley Women’s FC and Cricket Arena.

“Their arrival perfectly complements our vision for the park as the home of innovation in sport, health and wellbeing and we wish Ice Hockey UK all the best with their new HQ.”
