Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September will see the Storm celebrating he LGBT community. The match night proceedings will be hosted by the Manchester Pride Charity.
The club and Manchester Pride will also look to collaborate for the wider Elite League weekend in January 2020, as part of the ‘You Can Play’ project.
Not only is hockey back, but the Storm will also be wearing a brand-new special edition Pride jersey for these pre-season games. We would love to see our fans join in and turn up in pride colours! We want to see everyone in the Storm Shelter showing their support for this fantastic cause.
The local charity will be presenting the Man of the Match awards on both nights and resident Storm DJ, ‘John Ardolino’ will be unveiling a Pride Music playlist to entertain the hockey family throughout the weekend!

About Manchester Pride Charity
Almost all charities and fundraising events come from humble beginnings and most share a common link, in that the reason they started was through necessity and the fact that someone or a community needed help. Our story is no different.
Starting life as a simple fundraiser, activities marking LGBT+ life in Manchester began as a ‘bring and buy sale’ organised by a few bars and members of the gay community on an August bank holiday weekend. Their goal was to raise some much-needed money for AIDS organisations in the city who were dealing with the beginning of the epidemic.
