Knoxville Ice Bears begin quest for 2019 SPHL President’s Cup


The Knoxville Ice Bears will kick off their quest for the 2019 SPHL President’s Cup this Friday when they play their first playoff of the season.

The Ice Bears will take on the Macon Mayhem in a best-of-three series in the opening Challenge Round of the SPHL Playoffs Friday. 

The team had an eventful challenge round in 2018. The Ice Bears advanced to the 2018 SPHL semifinals after clinching their opening series win with a triple-overtime game that was minutes away from the record of the longest in league history.

The Ice Bears are also offering a prize for the best-dressed fan. All you have to do is dress up in your best Ice Bears gear and take a photo and use the hashtag #icebearsnation. 

Game one gets underway Friday at 7:35 p.m. at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. The two teams will then travel to Macon, Georgia for Saturday’s game two at 7 p.m. If necessary, the deciding game three will be held Sunday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in Knoxville.
