Indoor Grand Match

The Indoor Grand Match is a spin off event based on the traditional Grand Matches which are held on a frozen loch when temperatures and ice conditions permit. The indoor version was initiated in the year 2000 to celebrate the millennium and due to its success has continued every five years since.

An imaginary line is drawn between the River Forth and River Clyde to decide the two sides and games held at around 17 participating ice rinks across Scotland. Scores are compiled at the conclusion of all the games with the winner being the side with the most points.
