Following their latest successful training session at Planet Ice Widnes, the new Peelers northern police ice hockey club have announced a series of sponsorship opportunities so that fans and local companies can help support the team.
The individual player sponsorship costs £150 and will last for three seasons. The benefits to the sponsor will include: sponsor’s name on the player’s shirt, invitations to games, photo opportunities with player mentions on social media, acknowledgements via match announcements at Peelers home games and a souvenir mini shirt.
There are other sponsorship packages available and deals can be tailored to suit all pockets and budgets. Ice hockey equipment suppliers Hockey Hound – for example - are providing the all –important pucks for the season’s matches and training sessions while club coach Neil Herring is supporting the players’ skates maintenance through his “Kip’s Skate Workshop” business.
The Peelers team are named after the founder of the UK police service Sir Robert Peel and the club is aimed at people who have an association with the police including Police Officers, PCSOs, Special Constables, civilian staff and ex-members or employees. It has players with a wide range of experience and ability from former GB internationals down to complete beginners.
Once the current coronavirus crisis is over, the team plans to play a series of charity games against other emergency teams with the hope of creating a league in the near future.
Anybody who would like to sponsor the team in some way is asked to get in touch via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
