The Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL are promoting a special Christmas in July offer. If you purchase a suite at the Infinite Energy Arena for your family or company party to see the Gladiators between now and Sun., July 29, you will get a $100 food credit.
The Gladiators encourage fans to call their front office at (770) 497-5100 for more information or to book the suite. There is no doubt that is a special time for the Gladiators organization. In 2018, they qualified for their first Kelly Cup playoff spot since 2013.

They include defenseman Zachary Malatesta, defenseman Jack Stander, right wing Derek Nesbitt, forward Luke Sandler, right-wing Alexandre Carrier, forward Todd Skirving, defenseman Ben Danford and left winger Darby Llewellyn.
The most high profile name on the list is Nesbitt. At age 36, he is entering his seventh season with the Gladiators. He is the team's all-time leading goal scorer with 115. Last season he had 15 goals, the fourth most on the Gladiators.
