The Nottingham Ice Hockey Supporters Trust are supporting the half term game for the Nottingham Lions as they face the Whitley Warriors at the National Ice Centre on October 22nd.
A member of the NIHST is personally sponsoring the game through the trust who are looking to support and promote all Nottingham Ice Hockey over the coming season and the match sponsorship for the Whitley Warriors fixture is another way in which the Trust are supporting ice hockey in Nottingham this season.
All members of the NIHST received one free match voucher to a Lions game as part of their membership pack at the start of the season and will be able to use their voucher at this game.
Rob Scott, interim chairman of the NIHST said: “We hope to develop the Trust to provide a co-ordinated and structured voice for the ice hockey supporters of ice hockey in Nottingham. Recognising the history, supporting the present and seeking to preserve the future. We are also looking to support wider ice hockey and community ventures in the city and feel that sponsoring a Nottingham Lions match is a great way to start.”
Danny Harrison, the General Manager of the Nottingham Ice Hockey Club spoke about the upcoming match sponsorship saying: “The Lions are very grateful for the support from the Nottingham Ice Hockey Supporters Trust, as everyone knows ice hockey in the UK is still a minority and developing sport. The Nottingham Ice Hockey Supporters Trust are a group of keen hockey fans who want to help install a sense of community within ice hockey in Nottingham and we at the Lions feel that their commitment to a sport that they feel so passionately about should be applauded. It will be great to welcome them to the Lions match against Whitley Bay on Sunday the 22nd of October.”
Match tickets for Lions home matches can be purchased on the day of the game priced at £5 for adults, who can take up to two under 16’s with them for free, and £3 for concessions.
This game is at the beginning of half term week so take the whole family out for an evening of ice hockey to the National Ice Centre and roar on the Lions!
