The Nottingham Panthers host arch-rivals Sheffield Steelers this evening as the two sides do battle in the Challenge Cup (7pm face-off) in a game sponsored by Cubo.

You can buy your tickets online now for tonight's action and they're also available in person at the Motorpoint Arena Box Office ahead of face-off.

The Panthers skated to a 4-3 victory when the sides met in pre-season in Nottingham earlier this month, with Otto Nieminen scoring twice including the game-winning goal.

Head Coach, Jonathan Paredes, said: "It's exciting to face the Steelers in a competitive game.

"Sheffield are a good team and we know what to expect from our two games in pre-season.

"We have to be ready from the first puck drop and play relentless never-give-up hockey."
