Supporters Trust gaining momentum

Saturday, 19th December 2015

The Manchester Phoenix Supporters Trust has continued to grow, with Phoenix fans having committed over £12,500 in just two weeks, and the club is hoping that donations will continue to pour in over the festive period.

In order to cover the club’s costs and complete the season, Phoenix owner Neil Morris stressed that additional income will still be required to keep the team on the ice: “Running an EPL side is an expensive investment, and although asking for help is not ideal, the fans know what’s at stake.  A permanent rink in Manchester will allow us to develop many different income streams, and secure the club’s long term future.”

Coach Tony Hand is also working hard on finding a replacement import for Nico Aatonen, who returned to Finland earlier in the week, and also young British players looking to play EPL ice hockey.

Neil Morris commented: “More injuries to the squad and the departure of Nico has meant we’re down to the bare bones.  To attract investment, we have to ensure the team remains competitive and we can’t afford to only ice two forward lines for the rest of the season.”
