SAP to sponsor World Cup of Hockey jerseys

By iSportconnect | August 18, 2016

The NHL and NHLPA announced on Wednesday that SAP, the company that overhauled statistics on NHL.com, will sponsor the jerseys for next month’s World Cup of Hockey tournament in Toronto.

The tournament, which begins Sept. 17, will feature all eight teams wearing SAP shoulder patches on their home and away jerseys. 

Replica jerseys that fans can buy will not have the patches.

SAP already collaborated with the League on the transformation of the NHL’s statistics platform on NHL.com and the introduction of new and enhanced statistics last year.

The NHL utilizes various SAP solutions and technologies including potentially deploying the SAP Cloud for Customer solution.
