Storm will begin their competitive season in the first stages of the KitKing Trophy competition, as defending champions, with back-to-back home clashes against Essex Rebels and London Elite on the 17th and 23rd September. The squad will then conclude the group phase of the competition away at rivals Thames Valley Cavaliers, hoping to progress to the quarter finals staged on Sunday 1st October.
The league season then begins on the 7th October away at Loughborough Riders, with a tricky first month including welcoming Worthing Thunder in our first home game and a trip to Derby. Other dates to watch out for are the National Cup Final, which Storm will hope to attend in an attempt to replicate last year’s triumph, and the annual season-ending playoff campaign starting with the quarter-finals on the weekend of the 13th April and concluding in Manchester on the 28th.
Full fixtures can be found here.
Tickets are now available for September home games online here.
Be sure to get down to the StormDome to carry the team through the season once more, starting with the yearly curtain-raising friendly against Team USA Select on Sunday 10th September at 6pm!
