The Crowne Plaza Hotel once again did us proud as the Sheffield Steelers held their biggest and best shirt launch on Thursday night.
The buzz, the hype and the sheer noise was amazing as the Steelers were introduced out one by one to the fans.
Their was even a little bit of Steelers Boy Band singing to entertain you from Messrs DeLuca, Vallerand and Eberle.
The queues started at 2pm, the doors opened and 5pm and the boys hit the stage at 7.30pm.
There was so much going on all night as many fans collected their season tickets, joined the SSSC and also took a look and purchased the new Steelers replica shirts.
Behind the stage the Steelers had gathered with many of the clubs sponsors
Presentations and photos were taken with the boys meeting their sponsors for the first time this season.
Then it was show time and we need to see you all in action first – wow what an attendance.
One by one the players were introduced onto the stage.
Duba, Duba, Duba, Duba was the first big chant of the night.
The boys were in great form with DeLuca, Vallerand and Eberle taking their car pool karaoke one step further with a live on stage performance – don’t give up the day job boys …..
Benny and Dowdy weren’t to be outdone, Benny somewhat a little jealous of the amount of love Simmsey gives Dowdy. Well he is the Golden Child isn’t he.
Last on stage was head coach and GM, Aaron Fox, how appreciative were the fans to the new boss.
Fox confirmed that he was as excited as the rest of us for the new season, he also confirmed how well camp had progressed so far and what great shape the team had arrived in.
Steelers then left the stage and mingled with fans, signing autographs, taking selfies and chatting with those supporters who had been in the room by them for some5 or 6 hours.
