Manchester Phoenix have confirmed they fully intend to take their place in the EPL.
The news follows last night’s mysterious events on Twitter after a tweet was posted saying the club would not be competing in the league next season.
The tweet was deleted and replaced with a firm denial.
The Manchester Phoenix are fully committed to competing in the 16/17 English Premier League Season. We can confirm our account was hacked.

The club, who also reported the matter to the police, has told BIH it will be represented at Wednesday’s EPL meeting to outline its plans for the new campaign.
EIHA chairman Ken Taggart has confirmed that team owners will be discussing the situations at both Phoenix and Bracknell Bees at the meeting.
