It's gameday as The Nottingham Panthers host Sheffield Steelers at the Motorpoint Arena in the GM the GM Memorial Cup (4pm face-off) in a match sponsored by McDonald's.

It's the second meeting between the two sides in under 24 hours following the Steelers winning on home ice last night.

Head Coach, Jonathan Paredes, said: "I can't wait for the game and the players feel the same. Our first game in front of our fans is so important.

"Nothing beats being on the bench for a game and I can't wait to feel the atmosphere. The players are the same and they are excited to get started.

"It will be great to hear the support of the fans. This will be the first step for us and we are looking forward to getting under way at home."

GM the GM Memorial Cup game remembering Mike Hammond and Alex Graham
Today's now-annual game is a reminder of all the great work General Manager Gary Moran did for our club, with Panthers and Steelers competing for the GM the GM Memorial Cup this afternoon.

It also takes on extra significance for both clubs following the difficult summer which saw Mike Hammond and Alex Graham pass away and we'll pay tribute to both players before face-off.

There will also be a Book of Condolence for Mike Hammond for supporters to sign in the foyer which, when complete, will be passed onto his family.

Around the Rink
Our Charity of the Month is The Fire Fighters Charity and they'll be joining us in the foyer today. They'll also have a fire engine on Bolero Square, so make sure you pop over and take a look at it.

Pass the Pizza in association with Jon Doe
New for this season, we're giving away 10 pizzas at home games thanks to our friends at Jon Doe. This superb giveaway will take place in the second-period powerbreak. If you're holding a pizza box when the music stops, take it to the Merchandise Stand in the foyer to exchange it for a voucher code to claim your pizza.

Dance Cam in association with 2Fawcett
Here's your chance to get on the jumbotron by displaying your best moves. Look out for the Dance Cam - in association with 2Fawcett - in the third-period powerbreak.

Panthers Vault a mouthwatering £700
After rolling over from last season, the Panthers Vault stands at £700 this afternoon and also includes two tickets for an upcoming show thanks to Motorpoint. Tickets cost £1 and if yours is drawn out of the hat, you go rinkside with DJ Ken Feast to try and win the money inside the vault. Choose one of the players from the Panthers roster shown on the jumbotron to reveal a four-digit code and see if it unlocks the vault.

Chances to win in Chuck-a-Puck, Shirt Off His Back and Fifty50
Today's Chuck-a-Puck, sponsored by Midlands Chauffeurs, is a very special prize. The winner will be invited onto the ice at the end of the game for a photo with their favourite player and receive a signed puck, as well as a code for two free pizzas thanks to Jon Doe.

Tonight's Shirt Off His Back is Ollie Betteridge and tickets will be on sale in the foyer and around the concourse for £1 each. The winner will receive Ollie's game-worn black #74 jersey and be invited onto the ice during the post-match presentations for a photo. The shirt will be signed and presented after the game.
