Your Go Goodwins Manchester Storm are delighted to announce details of their upcoming 2018/19 pre-season campaign, which this year sees 4 different European teams visiting the #StormShelter as well as one Elite Ice Hockey League team, in the inaugural 4 Nations Showcase!

The Storm will begin the 4 Nations Showcase with a rematch against the reigning Gardiner Conference champions, and our 2018 Predictor Bet Playoff Quarterfinal opponents, the Fife Flyers, at home on Wednesday the 22nd of August, before facing them again at the Fife Ice Arena on Wednesday the 29th of August.

The Storm will then welcome top Danish Metal Ligaen sides Odense Bulldogs & Aalborg Pirates to Planet Ice Altrincham on the 25th and 26th of August respectively. We then welcome German DEL2 sides Eispiraten Crimmitschau & SC Riessersee the following weekend on the 1st & 2nd of September! This is the first time since Storm have reformed, that they will have played European opponents, and we expect the games to be very popular!

Managing Director Jamie Tunstall is thrilled to be able to bring top European hockey to the “Storm Shelter” this season, commenting;

Last season we only had 8 weeks to prepare for the season ahead, so this coming season we knew we had more time to plan and make sure we get a proper pre-season schedule together that not only challenges our players but also gives our fan base top European action on home ice. We’re delighted to announce the 4 Nations Showcase, and hope this can become an annual pre-season event! 

Meanwhile, Head Coach Ryan Finnerty added;

It’s important to get as much game time together before the Season starts.  These games will benefit our game condition, timing, and chemistry levels while also allowing guys more time to adjust to the size of the ice here in Manchester.  I am also happy for our fans, as they get to see 4 different EU teams and I hope they can support the games so we can continue to bring in quality teams from around Europe.

More details about the games, including prices, will be released in due course.
