Bank Holiday Sunday 26 August will be your first chance to meet and greet your 2018-2019 Swindon Wildcats team in their annual Launch Day.
In one of the key events on the hockey calendar, it gives you chance to see the boys on the ice for the very first time in the open training session. Not only this, but the team will be wearing the 18/19 jerseys for the first time as well.
The Invitation Only press and sponsor conference will begin at 12pm in Studio 1 at the Better Link Centre. This will be the chance for VIP guests to ask questions to Wildcat's top table and mingle with the team and get your first photos before the team have broken a sweat on the ice.
From 12:45pm the balcony will be open to the public, and the Wildcat Sports shop will be open to collect your season tickets. At 1:15pm the players will hit the ice one by one for their official introductions, then individual photographs and the first team shot will be taken. This will be the first time you get to see Tyler Plews, Adam Harding and Sam Jones wearing their Wildcats kit.
After an on-ice training session run by Head Coach Aaron Nell the team will leave the ice, get changed and showered and head over to The Harvey where the Swindon Wildcats Supporters Club will be running a BBQ open to all fans. All the players will be attending the BBQ so there will be the opportunity to grab a photo or an autograph with your favourite players.
A Wildcats spokesperson said: "We are excited to get the season underway and with the launch day all planned and ready to go we can’t wait to see you all there and enjoy another successful hockey season!"
