The 2010 AIHL season is the 11th season of the Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL). It ran from 24 April 2010 until 22 August 2010, with the Goodall Cup finals following on 28 and 29 August.

League business[edit]

For the 2010 season Melbourne Ice relocated to a new stadium in Melbourne. The new ice rink known as the Icehouse is the home of the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia. It features two olympic size rinks and is one of three in Australia to be fully glassed.[1] The Gold Coast Blue Tongues signed an agreement with the Southern Stars Ice Hockey Club to play two of their home games in Brisbane at Acacia Ridge, which is a full sized olympic sized-rink.[2]
