The biggest of game days #Support25

It's game-day and they don't get any bigger as Genting Casino Coventry Blaze face-off against the Sheffield Steelers tonight at the Skydome Arena (7.30pm) in a benefit game to support one of the club's greatest ever players, Adam Calder in his fight against cancer.

Adam has been privately battling cancer for the past two years but is now required to seek additional treatment not available on the NHS, thus incurring significant costs.

As a club, and with overwhelming backing from the worldwide hockey family we launched the Support 25 campaign to raise funds to help Adam seek the treatment he requires.

To this point we have raised just over £22,000 through the generosity of donations and the 25 for 25 auction - we can't thank those who have helped so far enough, however big or small, every little counts.

Tonight will see the main event of the #Support25 campaign - the benefit game as Blaze take on the Sheffield Steelers.

Two periods of exciting 3-on-3 hockey and a skills competition contested by players from both teams (7.30pm, Skydome Arena).

This will be a fun event and we encourage as many fans as possible to come along to support Adam.
