The Steelers have arrived in Minsk and found themselves in an incredible city, a fantastic arena and superb hotel.
Day 1 has been a hard long travel day starting at 1am when the players started to arrive at ICE Sheffield to get on the bus to Gatwick airport.
Once at the airport the bags were unloaded and two hours later the team were on the plane to Minsk.
Once we touched down the team headed to the fantastic 5 year old arena to unload their gear. What a facility. Great dressing rooms and staff area’s.
On to the 5 Star hotel, the boys checked in and then had a team meal before heading to their rooms. Minsk is 3 hours ahead of the uk. Its an early night but they have had a long day.
Steelers skate tomorrow afternoon.
