Over the weekend, the new season of the Elite Ice Hockey League kicked off with Manchester Storm facing Nottingham Panthers. We’re happy to head into the season proudly supporting Storm, agreeing a two-year sponsorship deal with our O2 Sale store. After our successful partnerships with other sports teams such as Macclesfield Town FC, we thought it was a fantastic opportunity to work with the Manchester ice hockey team in an exciting and growing sport in the UK.
What will O2 Sale be doing as part of the Manchester Storm partnership?
We’re extremely excited to be bringing our world of tech to Planet Ice Altrincham over the next two years. We’re planning to do a lot with Manchester Storm as part of this partnership across social media and at the ice rink for their loyal fans.
On the 22nd September, Storm face Sheffield Steelers and we’re going to be giving fans the chance to test out some of our tech at the stadium during the breaks, as well as giving the chance to have their picture with our selfie frame on the big screen. We’ll also be giving away some free tech goodies so if you’re attending then make sure you look out for our stand!
We’ve created some fantastic Snapchat filters which will be live during every home game this season. It’s a great opportunity for the fans to show their support and pride for Storm. We’re going to look to release more content for the fans throughout the next two years and add to the Manchester Storm experience. You’ll also be able to see our O2 Sale boards around the rink which will be there for the duration of the partnership.
This is only the start of a special relationship between O2 Sale and Manchester Storm as we look forward to working together going forward. We’re sure it’s going to be a successful season.
