GMB PANTHERS v DUNDEE Sat at seven - fans guide!
Saturday night ice hockey is back with a bang and this week the game sees the GMB Panthers take on the Dundee Stars in an important league game. Our game sponsor is the team's main sponsor the Mansfield 103.2 and they'll be bringing their new mascot to the game to appear alongside the greatest mascot of all - PAWS! Ticket sales are strong for the match but anyone who decides to come along last minute will be able to pay on the door. It may be Goose Fair weekend in Nottingham but the place to be on Saturday night is definitely rinkside at the arena to watch the Panthers in action. There are lots of new things to look out for at this season’s home games such as the new shirt off his back raffle and Paws will have extra interval bouquet giveaways from Flowervision. As it's a Saturday fixture the end of match bouquet-giveaway will be with us too supported by PAUL'S FLOWERS OF MAPPERLEY IN NOTTINGHAM. PANTHERS’ VIP desk, sponsored by East Midlands Trains has moved to LEVEL THREE…that’s one flight of stairs up from the foyer and one flight of steps down from the hospitality boxes. Follow the signs to the Panthers’ VIP desk if you need to see us at the game. The new intro video for the screens continues to be a work in progress and we’ve got more to come in that department too…lots more! ISSUE THREE of the new look match night magazine will be on sale again at the game and includes a host of exclusive features, profiles, and columns…including a clutch of new features…including not one but TWO player profiles, called INSIDE EDGE and RELEASE THE BEAST find out all about your favourites and more. It’ll be on sale all around the arena (£3) and this issue features Brian McGrattan on the cover and on the centre-spread poster.. After this weekend’s game the next home action is a week on Sunday next week against Belfast. Tickets now on sale. That game will be followed by a signing session involving all the players for the first sales of the new Panthers' Yearbook - AT THE DOUBLE, covering the play-off and cup successes of last season and more. A night with the Panthers can be more than just a visit to a sporting event. The games are staged inside the fabulous National Ice Centre. We have parking deals lined up at the Broadmarsh.
