A message to Sheffield Steelers fans – We’re sure Saturday is going to be difficult and many wanting to support the team in their first game back. There are 4 seats left in the ‘away’ blocks – feel free to book anywhere inside the Storm Shelter, you will be looked after. We advised using Block 115 as a ‘unity’ block to encourage fans of all teams to sit together to enjoy the game we all love, but this block has now fully sold out. If you’re a Sheffield Steeler, a Nottingham Panther or a fan or another team but would like to attend this match up, we suggest booking in Block 106, B111 or B112 as the majority of the other blocks have now sold out or are close to capacity.
AS IT STANDS
It was a mixed weekend of results for Manchester Storm as they travelled to Cardiff on Saturday and picked up a 3-1 win after a fantastic team effort. Sunday however was a difficult affair coming out on the losing end of a 5-1 scoreline at home to Belfast Giants. The 2023/24 season squad look to bounce back with a big win this Saturday in front of the home fans.
The win on Saturday was enough to keep Head Coach Matt Ginn and his men in third position in the Elite League standings ahead of weekends opponents Cardiff Devils and Belfast Giants.
