Meet the players

Wednesday, 26th August 2009

With last week's sold-out Shirt Launch Event now in the rear-view mirror, it's time to introduce the entire 2009-10 Manchester Phoenix squad including Adam Walker who arrived safely back in the country following his adventurous charity bike ride to Paris.

On Wednesday 9th September (7:30pm), the Phoenix squad will be heading back to the city centre's Britannia Hotel for the 'Meet The Players' Event, where Player/Head Coach Tony Hand MBE will introduce new imports Jaakko Hagelberg, Andre Mattsson, Ed Courtney and Andre Payette, together with the all-important British contingency.

As Tony said: "The 'Meet The Players' Event is the first time the fans will have to interact one on one with this season's entire squad giving everyone present a chance to ask questions, pose for photographs, sign autographs and generally get to know a little more about each other. I know the players really enjoy this opportunity of relaxing with the fans before the rigours of the season gets underway - let's hope the fans do too."

Tickets for this early opportunity of getting up close and personal and welcoming the squad to the Phoenix faithful are priced £5 Adults & £1 Children (Aged 5-15), and are available via the Ticket Hotline 0161 301 6848...but hurry, space is very limited!

And don't forget to get your tickets for the Sunday 13th September 'War of the Roses' vs. Sheffield at Altrincham Silver Blades Ice Rink (Doors Open 4:45pm & Face-off 5:30pm). Not included within any of the game packages currently on sale, tickets for this Pre-season home game against the trans-Pennine arch rivals are priced at just £6 for everyone with £1.00 from each ticket benefiting Junior Development, and are available via the Ticket Hotline 0161 301 6848.
