Video: GMB Nottingham Panthers Continental Cup Champions 2017

The success of the GMB Nottingham Panthers in winning the Continental Cup and becoming the first ever UK team to lift a European title was celebrated by the City of Nottingham at a big open air event in the Old Market Square on Tuesday evening (February 7th).

Panthers were the lowest ranked team at the Super Final in Italy where they had a clean sweep of victories beating the hosts, Ritten, Odense from Denmark and Atyrau from Kazakhstan.

Panthers had qualified for the Continental Cup by winning last season’s play-offs in Nottingham at the arena. Their European adventure was played entirely on the road in Spain, Denmark and Italy.
