SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Fans of the Flint Firebirds had to go a little bit farther to watch their home team play on Wednesday night.

Bad ice conditions moved the game against the London Knights to the Dow Event Center in Saginaw.

The decision was made with the players’ safety in mind.

“In the interest of player safety, we decided to try and do a relocation. And the Spirit and the Dow Event Center were very helpful,” said Firebirds President Costa Papista. “They really bent over backwards to accommodate us tonight, which we greatly appreciate.”

Wednesday night was supposed to be Law Enforcement Appreciation Night, featuring a fundraiser for Crime Stoppers.

That has been moved to Saturday.
