Manchester’s Elite League ice hockey side have sold out the first match under their new owner and new coach.
The Storm will join forces with Manchester Phoenix to create a Manchester Legends team, including Hall of Fame inductee and former Phoenix player-coach Tony Hand.
They’ll take on a UK All-Stars team in Altrincham on June 10th to raise funds for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. This comes less than a week after Justin Bieber paid a visit to the Storm Shelter after playing at the One Love Manchester concert.
General Manager, Neil Russell says all tickets have now been sold.
The All-Star game will be the first fixture since the club’s off-season revolution, which has seen them taken over by new owner Gordon Greig. He says the Storm will be selling out every home match within three years.
Greig’s first business was to appoint Ryan Finnerty as Storm’s new head coach. He’s promising a ‘rough and tumble’ style of play, pledging to make his new team more physical. Especially at home.
