GMB Panthers v Manchester - fans guide for Saturday

GMB Panthers v Manchester - fans guide for Saturday

Saturday night ice hockey is back with a bang and this week the game sees the GMB Panthers take on the Manchester Storm in a game that counts for both league and cup points. Our game sponsor is the team's main sponsor the G M B. 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 MASCOT 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 THE ART OF FLOWERS on Derby Road in Nottingham. The Panthers have joined forces once again with Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust in a campaign that aims to promote physical and mental health and well-being. The award winning CHECK IT OUT campaign will be in the foyer for the first time this year and has helped spread the word on a number of health topics from healthy eating, keeping fit and brushing your teeth, through to depression, eating disorders and support for carers. 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! Saturday games will again feature the players handing bouquets over the glass to fans during the end of match presentations BUT there’ll be a few extra bouquets handed out in the intervals this year. The main giveaway from the whole team will be supported tomorrow by Woods of Arnold, which opened in 1962, and is one of the longest established florists in the Nottingham area who pride themselves on the individual quality service to all customers. ISSUE TWO 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). After this weekend’s game the next home action is a week on Saturday against Dundee, more top action featuring the GMB Panthers. Tickets now on sale. 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. It’s cheap on a match by match basis for fans, and it’s cheaper still if you grab a parking season ticket. For more information e-mail parking@nottinghamcity.gov.uk After every home game the Panthers' players will be eating meals from Pizzeria Savai, close to the arena. Fans can use their match tickets or Panthers season tickets to take advantage of a “Buy One Get One for half-price” deal at Pizzeria Savai on game days. Match and season tickets can also be used on the Nottingham trams network to get into the game with £2 return tickets. Adult season ticket holders can get a meal deal special from MacDonalds in Nottingham all week long (after 10.30am). The fifty-50 draw is brought to you in association with Temple Printing. A £1 ticket could win you over a thousand pounds…..you’ve got to be in it to win it! The more tickets you buy – the bigger the prize! And this season saw the launch of our new SHIRT OFF HIS BACK RAFFLE which is just one pound a ticket. The winner will get to visit the player at the locker room after the game for the shirt handover. The shop and the merchandise stalls on the concourse carry a full range of Panthers branded goods. <><><> WE HAVE GOT A LOT OF NEW FANS COMING TO GAMES THI
