Steelers fans invited for Sunday lunch

Two Blaze sponsors have come together to offer a unique invitation to the fans of this Sunday’s visitors to the Skydome Arena, the Sheffield Steelers.

Our title sponsor Genting Casino and the well-known, DRP Logistics are offering the travelling army of South Yorkshire fans a free buffet at the Casino, from 3.30pm on Sunday 15th January. Please note: due to Casino laws, this will be an over 18’s event only - Please bring ID if felt neccessary.

The Casino are also offering 25% off drinks to ALL fans with a ticket for the game up until the face-off time of the game (5.15pm) - a privilege already enjoyed of course by Blaze season ticket holders. We encourage Blaze fans to come along to take advantage of the drinks offer and enjoy a sociable afternoon with our visitors.

DRP Logistics Managing Director Rob Plaister said, “I really felt for the Steelers’ fans this week, the webcast disappearing for a majority of games was one thing, but the away travel also being taken away from them must have been a massive blow to some (decision since revised). We totally understand and respect that the Sheffield management have their reasons for taking this decision. However, we wanted to find a way to show how important it is, and how much we value the continued support of Sheffield (and all other away teams) fans at the Skydome Arena – and in some way, say thanks. So, if you are a fan of the Steelers, if you can, please find a way to come and join us in the Casino and for the game on Sunday.” 

Rob continued, “The Blaze against Steelers fixtures are normally cracking games, and we hope the afternoon in the fantastic Casino bar will be a fun experience, with light food and liquid refreshments, it’ll be well worth the trip.”

The Blaze would like thank Tracey Gough and Genting Casino Coventry for their support and participation in this venture.

The Casino is open from 12 noon on Sunday, the buffet for the Sheffield fans and the drinks deal for all with a ticket will begin at 3.30pm.

Genting Casino can be found in the row of establishments in the Skydome complex at the back of the rink (Croft Rd, Coventry CV1 3AZ).

We look forward to seeing you all!
