The players tested their skills off the ice and went head-to-head with supporters at NHL18, beer pong, pool and shuffleboard in a special Game Night with the Panthers at Shooters bar within the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex.
The Friar Lane venue signed a two-season partnership deal with the Panthers when it opened in January.
Gary Moran, General Manager of the Nottingham Panthers, said the club was looking forward to getting involved in events at Shooters. “Through the sponsorship, we’re excited to work with a major name like Bierkeller Entertainment Group who have so much success across the country.
“The players always enjoy meeting fans and something like this gives them the chance to do it in a really fun way, plus everyone gets a great night out.”
Isaac Mayne, head of marketing and promotions for Burning Night Group which owns the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex, says he hopes this will be the first of many events over the next couple of seasons.
“We’re the number one venue for fans watching live sport in Nottingham, so we like to be able to offer them something unique when we can. Our partnership with the Panthers allows us to do that and we hope supporters will enjoy the opportunity to meet their favourite stars and to take them on in games where the odds are a bit more in their favour.”
Sean Cullen General Manager of The Bierkeller Entertainment Complex said, “The Panther’s event was great and all the crowd got involved with the players. We look forward to having more of these events in Nottingham”.
