Geico Challenge Cup


By Ken Peacock

The 2010/2011 season saw a great rivalry emerge between our Norfolk Admirals and the Charlotte Checkers. The Checkers have since moved on to the Western Conference for the upcoming season. What does this mean for that rivalry? While they may not see each other as much as they did last season, the rivalry is still there. They will also participate in the battle for the 2011/2012 GEICO Challenge Cup.

The Admirals and Checker play each other eight times during the 2011/2012 regular season and the team that finishes with the most standings points in the season series will win GEICO Challenge Cup at the end of the series. The series will start this Friday at the Norfolk Scope and end on Sunday, Mar. 18, 2012 at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte.

“GEICO is proud to partner with the Admirals and Checkers for the GEICO Challenge Cup,” said GEICO regional vice president Joe Thomas. “We are eager to provide the hockey fans in the Hampton Roads and Charlotte regions with an exciting season series between American Hockey League rivals.”

The puck drops this Friday at 7:30pm. Get your tickets today. Individual tickets are now on sale for all 38 Admirals regular season home games at the Scope Box Office, all Ticketmaster Outlets, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 and online at



I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
