Royals Kick Off Home 'Movember' This Weekend

Reading, PA – The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL, take this opportunity to encourage fans of the team to participate in the annual ‘Movember’ effort to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues.

The Royals’ players, led by veteran forward, Ryan Cruthers, have established a web-site http://moteam.co/reading-royals-players where fans can follow the players’ respective mustache growing progress (if not prowess), as well as pledge donations to support the ongoing efforts to cure prostate cancer and testicular cancer, as well as improve mental health for men.

This weekend, the Royals face the Fort Wayne Komets in back-to-back games at Santander Arena in Reading—Friday (November 7 @ 7:30 pm) and Saturday (November 8 @ 7:05 pm). Friday’s game will be the first time that Reading has faced Fort Wayne since the Komets knocked the Royals out in the first round of the 2014 Kelly Cup Playoffs. The games between the Royals and Komets on Friday and Saturday will be the only games of the regular season between these two clubs.

For Friday’s game, fans can take advantage of the Sonic Friends and Family Deal when $44.00 gets you four Royals’ Silver Zone tickets, four hats and four Sonic Combos. Please note that there are no day of game sales of the Sonic Friends and Family Deal, so fans should CALL TODAY (610-898-7825) to take advantage of this offer.

Friday’s game will also mark the first of what will be six ‘Free Shirt Fridays’ presented by V&M Towing. The first 1500 fans in attendance (15 years of age and older) will receive a t-shirt honoring one of the twenty-nine players who have advanced from Reading to play in the NHL. Earlier this season, fans voted on their six favorite former Royals who have advanced to the NHL, and this Friday (November 7) the team will honor goaltender Ben Scrivens, who played for the Royals in the 2010-11 season and made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 3, 2011 when he beat the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-1. Scrivens currently plays for the Edmonton Oilers.

On Saturday (November 8), the Royals will host Superhero Night, when Captain America, Ironman and Thor will be meeting, greeting, signing autographs and posing for photographs—if not directly saving the world.
