Flames visit Nottingham Saturday
It’s gameday Saturday as the Panthers welcome the Guildford Flames to Nottingham for just their second Elite League game.
The Flames, who last season took part in the EPL, have come up to the EIHL and have experience no growing pains at all just yet.
They first travelled to Belfast in League action and lost 6-4 before hosting the Cardiff Devils in Challenge Cup action and earning a startling 8-4 win!
It means that the Panthers cannot and will not be looking at this as a night off in an effort to add more league points to their standing.
There will be plenty going on during the day too as the Panthers, as always, have some great deals and steals for you around the city!
We’ve got the Shirt off his back raffle back in full flow with Mark Derlago’s jersey up for grabs this time.
The last two raffles have sold out before the end of the first period so make sure to not miss out on getting your ticket!
There’s also a brand new magazine coming out this weekend with some more fantastic content.
Keep an eye on our social media tomorrow for an idea on some of this week’s magazine exclusive features!
The fifty-fifty draw will be in operation also and remember, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
Fans have been very supportive of the new safety and security measures which have been brought in this season. Fans are urged to allow extra time to get to their seats. There will be bag searches and the restrictions on sizes will be enforced. There will be no lockers in general use at Panthers’ home games, There will be pat downs and wand searches going on in the search lanes too. Please follow the arena staff instructions when leaving the arena after the games this year. There will be reduced exits available but the number in use will vary depending on the size of the crowds at games.

We have parking deals lined up with Nottingham City Car Parks at Broadmarsh East and Sheriff’s Lodge. It’s going to be cheap on a match by match basis for fans, but it’s cheaper still if you grab a parking season ticket. For more information call 0115 8761444.
The arena catering team will be feeding the Panthers’ players after their home games this season. Meanwhile there has been a revamp for fans on the concourse too with more choices on the food front and reduced prices for beer, tea and coffee. Every time Panthers kill off a penalty on the ice there will be ten pence knocked off the price of a pint in the ENCORE bar after the final hooter.
