Deals and Steals- Steelers edition
It's the first visit of the Sheffield Steelers to the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham tonight and it should be a cracker.
Although the Panthers were on the losing side of the last showdown, it was a 6-5 goalfest that we lost by a buzzer beater.
The Panthers hackles are up and we won't be wanting that to happen again.
You can expect a great game with plenty of goalthreat from both sides.
But there's a lot going on off the ice too to get excited about.
Michael Garnett is the cover star of this week's magazine after his stellar display against Finnish giants, Turku.
There're interviews with Jeff Brown, Zack Phillips, Sam Gospel and front cover man Garnett to enjoy.
It's a great issue so get yours tonight for just £3.
We'll also still be running our Creams Cafe Nottingham end of the pier competition to win two free sundaes!
Robert Lachowicz and Ollie Betteridge though they were delicious and you will to, so get your photo and tweet it into us to win.
Finally, for a big game, you need a big shirt off his back prize and tonight we have one of the biggest.
Evan Mosey's jersey is up for grabs and we're guessing it's going to be a popular prize!
We've already had a few sellouts in this raffle so don't risk it, get yours before the faceoff.
The fifty-fifty draw will be in operation also and remember, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
We'd also like to remind supporters that the new security measures are still being enforced.
The arena have done a great job of implementing it so far and fans have been very supportive of the new safety and security measures.
However, 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.
New marquees have been installed outside the arena for the security lanes so fans will not be too affected by adverse weather while queueing for security.
There will be reduced exits available but the number in use will vary depending on the size of the crowds at games.
PANTHERS’ VIP desk, is again on LEVEL THREE…that’s one flight of stairs up from the foyer and one flight of steps down from the hospitality boxes.
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 where Dan Green will be having a chat with one of the players as soon after the hooter as they can get there.
Shooters Bar will be backing the Panthers' powerplay this season. Adult season ticket holders can get a meal deal special from MacDonalds in Nottingham all week long (after 10.30am).
Match and season tickets can be used on the Nottingham trams network to get to the game for £2 return.
Tonight's game is sponsored by the Panthers official jeweller, Temprell who made our Continental Cup winners ring!
