210909 | Weekend
The roar is on its way back with the return of THE NOTTINGHAM Panthers with a live audience at the Motorpoint Arena for the first time in eighty weeks on Sunday at four o’clock.
It will be the deciding leg of the Diamond Jubilee Cup against rivals the Cardiff Devils and the box office reports strong ticket sales but there are still good seats available so tell your family, your friends and your neighbours – THE ROAR IS BACK!
INTERMOTOR – YOUR FIRST CHOICE IN ENGINE MANAGEMENT are sponsoring Panthers training camp which started this week and includes the game against Cardiff and the next home match when we face arch-rivals Sheffield on the following Saturday.
THE NOTTINGHAM Panthers’ line-up will have some fans’ favourites, some returning faces and a host of newcomers and the game promises to be a spectacle!
SUNDAY AT FOUR ... SEE YOU THERE!
Meanwhile, you can turn up fully loaded for home games with your fifty-50 tickets and your SoHB tickets already bought. In fact, we’ve already got the first draws – for Sunday’s game – on sale.
Fans have supported the club fantastically well throughout the pandemic. At times our website and social media numbers have gone through the roof and the hundreds of unique prizes on offer by way of the online weekly raffles have been superbly supported. Now, as fans return to witness the action live for the first time in a long time there is still a need to cut down on face-to-face and contact interaction for everyone’s safety. To that end, we’re switching the match-day raffles to a new online operation. All the draws will go live throughout the week leading up to a weekend game.
If, however, you choose to wait until game day to buy your draw tickets you will be able to do so on your smart ‘phones. There will be QR (quick response) codes all around the arena, on stands, on helpers’ tabards, on posters and on the giant videotron scoreclock above centre ice and on the plaza LED display as you come into the arena. Just point your ‘phone camera at the code, tap the link that pops up on your home screen and instantly you’ll land at Panthers’ raffle HQ.
You’ll then be just a couple of clicks away from buying tickets for either the fifty-50 draw with its big cash prize OR for the Shirt Off His Back draw OR BOTH!
There will be other changes to bear in mind as well. Seat tickets will be checked outside the arena which is to a large extent switching to a cashless operation, although there will be some tills operating in the ‘old fashioned way’.
Spectators are being urged to wear masks if they want to and the more double-jabbed spectators the better. It’s not the rule but we are urging everyone to be respectful of others’ wishes at all times.
Thank you for your amazing support throughout the lockdowns, throughout the behind-closed-doors Elite Series and now in the build-up to the return of live ice hockey at the Motorpoint Arena.
We can’t wait to get back on the ice and entertain you once again.
This will be the club’s 75th Anniversary Season. That’s a rich history of sport and long may it continue.
PANTHERS v CARDIFF on Sunday September 12th (four o’clock) in the deciding leg of the Diamond Jubilee Cup.
PANTHERS v STEELERS on Saturday September 18th (seven o’clock) in the Aladdin Cup.
BOTH GAMES SPONSORED BY INTERMOTOR.
TICKETS FOR BOTH MATCHES ON SALE NOW! CLICK HERE FOR GAME TICKETS.
WHY NOT TURN UP FOR THE ACTION FULLY LOADED AND ARMED WITH YOUR TICKETS FOR THE FIFTY-50 AND THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK DRAW.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND WE’LL SEE YOU THERE!
