The Trade-Mart Dundee Stars will open the 2023-2024 Elite League season with a trip to Northern Ireland for a Challenge Cup contest against last season’s treble winners, Belfast Giants on Friday, September 22nd.

The season opener in Belfast will be followed by the first home game, 24 hours later as the Stars then host the Giants in another Challenge Cup fixture (face-off 7pm).

Prior to the opening weekend, there will also be four preseason friendlies held in the two weeks before the first puck drop of the new campaign.

First up is a double header against our biggest rivals, Fife Flyers with a trip to Kirkcaldy on Saturday, September 9th and a home game on Sunday, September 10th (face-off 5pm), before both clubs then face a pair of European clubs in a weekend of exhibition matches.

Romanian side, Corona Brasov and Dutch outfit, Tilburg Trappers will travel to Tayside for one match each against the Stars and Flyers, with Dundee hosting Brasov on Saturday, September 16th (face-off 7pm) and then the Trappers on Sunday 17th (face-off 5pm).

The first regular season fixture will be played on Saturday, September 30th, when Marc LeFebvre takes his side on the road to face Manchester Storm and the two teams then meet again in Dundee, the following day.

A pair of Tayside Derbies follows as the Stars and Flyers meet for the first time in competitive action and play back-to-back on the weekend of October 7th & 8th in the Challenge Cup.

The first road trip weekend of the season will come on Saturday, October 14th with visits to Nottingham Panthers and then Sheffield Steelers on Sunday, October 15th.
