Murrayfield Racers have agreed a major sponsorship deal with Bauer Hockey, the world’s most recognised designer, marketer and manufacturer of hockey equipment.
Founded in Kitchener, Ontario, in 1927, Bauer developed the first skate with a blade attached to a boot, forever changing the game of hockey.
Since then, Bauer has continued to develop the most sought after products in the industry, including the widely successful SUPREME®, VAPOR® and NEXUS® lines of products.
Willie Dunn, a director of the Racers, said: “We’re delighted to have Bauer on board as our first major sponsor.
“The company are known worldwide and their equipment is used by players at the highest level in the sport.
“This is a major signing for us and it shows our commitment to work with the best and to create a team that everybody in the Capital city of Edinburgh is proud of both on and off the ice.”
Lucy Thomasson, a director of Bauer UK, said: “We are pleased to be supporting the Murrayfield Racers for the 2018/19 season.
“Following the recent success of Great Britain winning gold and being promoted to top level of the World Championships and Liam Kirk being drafted by National Hockey League team Arizona Coyotes, it is an exciting time for Murrayfield Racers to return to the game.
“We wish the club every success for the upcoming season.”
The Racers will play out of Murrayfield Ice Rink in the Scottish National League (SNL) and the National Ice Hockey League (North) Cup and Tony Hand is currently recruiting players for the squad.
Their season starts in September and fixtures will be confirmed in due course.
