NEW High Visibility Sponsorship Opportunities

Zamboni advertising

Event Trailer

  • It’s a party in a box complete with its own sound and P.A system and live streaming cameras. Strategically located in a high traffic area during the event. It also tours periodically throughout the region during the rest of the year.

Live Event Streaming

  • Offers a chance for our fans and followers to check in on our event. It’s also a great opportunity for our players and sponsors to check in on ice conditions and rink development in the lead up to the event.

Ice Crew Sponsorship

  • No better place (or weather) to test your winter wear or get attention for your brand than on the backs of our event heroes!
