More Ice Hockey for 5 live sports extra

The three upcoming Ice Hockey Olympic final qualifiers in Riga, Latvia will be covered live on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra in February.

Live commentary of all three games will be provided by Seth Bennett, plus reporter Nick Hope will cover the tournament providing news, features and interviews back to audiences in the UK.

GB begin the Group E tournament with a match against the hosts Latvia on Thursday 7 February 2013 (5:30pm UK time). They will then face France on Friday 8 February (1:30pm) and Kazakhstan on Sunday 10 February (11am).

Jonathan Wall, Acting Controller of BBC Radio 5 live and sports extra, says: “We’re excited to be covering the ice hockey for these important qualifying games for Team GB, as the UK’s attention turns to the forthcoming Winter Olympics.

“We aim to bring audiences as wide a range of sports as possible on the radio and these matches should provide fast-paced action, thrills and spills to make for great commentary.”
