Cardiff Devils will host HK Poprad from Slovakia’s top league in two pre-season games at Ice Arena Wales during August.
Devils are bringing Poprad to Cardiff Bay in preparation for the Champions Hockey League group fixtures.
The challenge fixtures will be on Saturday, August 18 (7pm) and Sunday, August 19 (6pm).
Tickets for the games will go on sale shortly.
HK Poprad play in the top league in Slovakia, the same league that HC Banska Bystrica play in, who the Devils hosted two years ago in pre-season action.
Head coach Andrew Lord and his Devils have already confirmed fixtures against Nottingham Panthers on Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12.
The first of those will be in Nottingham with the return at Ice Arena Wales the following evening.
