Tigers to meet fans at pre-season events
Telford Tigers fans can meet the clubâ€™s new-look squad at a series of events during the run-up to the English Premier League campaign.
Season ticket holders will be able to view the clubâ€™s first training session on August 21st, while picking up their passes from the Tigers Bar.
And on August 24th, the squad will be signing autographs during a meet and greet event in Telford Shopping Centre.
Paul Thomason, Managing Director of Telford Tigers, said: â€œAs with everyone connected with Telford Tigers, I am really looking forward to seeing the new squad get together over the next few weeks.
â€œThe season ticket event is designed give fans a sneak preview of the players as they hit the ice at Telford Ice Rink for the first time. Tom has worked hard to build a squad that we can all get behind.
â€œThe meet and greet event in Telford Shopping Centre will feature different players throughout the day, so supporters can really get to know the squad. It will also be a chance for us to talk to new fans about how exciting our games are.
â€œI canâ€™t thank the staff at Telford Shopping Centre enough for giving us the opportunity to hold an event in their malls. It will be peak shopping season, so weâ€™ll hopefully meet lots of people.â€
The season ticket event on August 21st, at Telford Ice Rink, will start at 5.45pm and run until 7.45pm, with refreshments available in the Tigers Bar. It will only be open to Tigers season ticket holders.
The meet and greet event on August 24th, meanwhile, will be held in Dean Street at Telford Shopping Centre. Players will be present from 10am until 2pm, although the display will be open throughout the day.
Glyn Morrow, Telford Shopping Centre Manager, said: â€œThis is a fantastic opportunity for Telford Shopping Centre to show its continued support to a local sports team. Fans young and old can stop by and meet their sporting heroes before they take to the ice for the new season.
â€œWe wish Telford Tigers every success and look forward to welcoming the players and their supporters to the Centre.â€
