All of us at the Sheffield Steelers are equally horrified by the situation in Ukraine, from here in Sheffield it is hard to know what to do or how to show our support for the people many miles away.
As a club we have played against teams and players from Ukraine, shared the same ice and the same sport.
This week all of us at the club have thought what was the best way we could help in our small way to show our support and also raise some funds for the people in the Ukraine.
So this Saturday the Sheffield Steelers will raffle off 20 warm up and 20 game worn shirts in one of our biggest raflles to date, with all proceeds being donated to the Association of Ukrainian’s Great Britain (https://www.augb.co.uk)
The Steelers will warm up in a specially designed shirt in the Blue and yellow of the Ukrainian flag.
Then for the game the Steelers game worn shirts will have the Steelers logo on in the blue and yellow of Ukraine, also each player shirt will have a Ukraine logo in place of the player nationality on the rear and collar.
Tickets will be on sale for this one off raffle at Saturday’s game against Dundee Stars at the Utilita Arena. Face Off is at 7.00pm with the doors opening at 5.30pm

Quote: Steelers operations director Shaun Smith said “We have obviously all been touched by the events in the Ukraine and as a club wanted, in some small way to show our support to the Ukrainian people and if possible try to make a difference by raising some much needed funds.
“We know our fans will support this raffle in a huge way thus making this 40 prize event the biggest and best Shirt Off Your Back Raffle we have ever organised”
