From the bee on our shirt, to the name in our logo, this club will forever and always be apart of Manchester.
 
On the evening of the 22nd of May 2017 at 22:31, Manchester was shook to its core when a suicide bomber detonated a device in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena following a Ariana Grande concert, killing twenty-two victims, and injuring over 800 people.
The attack brought the city of Manchester, a region which has known division in the past, together in a way no one thought possible. The One Love concert, the millions donated to We Love MCR, and our own #ForManchester game… It all helped to unite a region of people who, in defiance of terror, stood together stronger than ever before.
On the first anniversary of the attack, and taking inspiration from the Vegas Golden Knights who suffered a similar tragedy in October 2017, your Go Goodwins Manchester Storm would like to announce they will retire the #22 in memory of the Manchester Arena Bomb victims.
Jamie Tunstall, Managing Director of the Manchester Storm, believes this is the best way for the Storm to remember those we lost a year ago, commenting;
“As many fans know, the ownership took charge shortly after the attack at the Manchester Arena, and we were able to see what it meant to so many people at the sold-out #ForManchester game. It was a moving moment that certainly has stuck in our memories ever since. Since taking over the club, we’ve wanted to do something to honour those affected by the attack and retiring the number 22 is the best way possible in our minds.”
The banner will be lifted into place over the summer months, in preparation for the 2018/19 season. There will be no special jersey, no parade, no applause. We do this for one simple reason: To remember those lost and injured in the horrible attack.
As always: Bee kind. Bee strong. We Are Manchester.
