Monarchs To Host Third Annual Summer Fan Fest
MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Monarchs, the primary affiliate of the 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, will hold the third annual Summer Fan Fest at the Verizon Wireless Arena from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. Fans of all ages are invited to join the Monarchs as they celebrate the summer in style!
It is the halfway point until the Monarchs embark on their 13th season in the American Hockey League. The plaza of the Verizon Wireless Arena will be turned into a carnival-like atmosphere with inflatable bounce houses, a live band, photo opportunities with Max, games with former Monarchs players and a blowout sale at the Monarchs Pro Shop featuring equipment, jerseys, T-shirts, hats and much more!
A portion of Elm Street, from Lake Avenue to Auburn Street, will also be blocked off for Manchester’s largest Street Hockey Tournament, presented by TSR Hockey! Four divisions compiled of eight teams each will play a three-game, round-robin style tournament. The top four teams in each division will then compete in the playoffs for their shot at the championship. Games will be comprised of two, seven minute halves. The entry fee for the Street Hockey Tournament, presented by TSR Hockey, is $75 with proceeds benefiting the Monarchs Care Foundation. Participants in the tournament will also receive a ticket to the Monarchs Opening Night in October.

“We enjoy bringing Monarchs Country together in the middle of the summer to see our fans and our friends as we get ready for the upcoming season,” explained Monarchs President Darren Abbott. “Our Summer Fan Fest has been a great success the last two seasons. We look forward to seeing our fans and crowning a new street hockey champion!”
Former Monarchs players and current personnel will play games with fans and challenge some hockey players in the Street Hockey Tournament, presented by TSR Hockey! A full list of players will be announced at a later date.
Fans will have the opportunity to select seats for the 2013-14 season with packages starting at less than $20 per month! The Monarchs regular season schedule will be announced in late August. For ticket information, visit www.manchestermonarchs.com or call (603) 626-7825.
