The Manchester Monarchs have been a strong team since they were created. They have made it to the playoffs several times. I have always had a fun time at the games at the Verizon Wireless Arena. The promotions they do are amusing, and usually original (including the infamous Mullet Night) The fans are deeply involved and very passionate about the program. For example, at a hockey game for another area team, the Monarch fans were louder than the local fans. Great fun, even if the prices seem high for local sport event.
