Stena Line Renews Title Sponsorship of Belfast Giants

September 16, 2013

Ferry operator Stena Line has extended its title sponsorship of Elite Hockey League team, Belfast Giants for the third successive year. 

Northern Ireland’s leading ferry company, which has supported the Giants since 2008 with title sponsorship for the past two years, will ferry the Giants players and fans to away games in the UK throughout the season as well as travelling teams visiting Belfast. Stena Line will also join forces with the hard hitting ice hockey stars in their community work.

The partnership has already proved a huge success with the Giants winning the Monteith Bowl (League Title) in the first year and being consistently one of the tops teams in the league and cup competitions.

Stena Line’s Head of PR and Communications, Diane Poole OBE, said: “We’ve supported the team since 2008 with title sponsorship since 2011 and it’s been great to see the Giants develop as an entertaining but formidable ice hockey side. They have brought continued success to Belfast and we are delighted to be in partnership with them.

“We hope they can build on their fantastic achievements and secure more glory this season. Stena Line certainly wishes them well.” 

Todd Kelman, General Manager of the Stena Line Belfast Giants said: “Stena Line’s patronage heralded one of the most successful periods the team has ever had so we’re delighted to be renewing our connection with the leading ferry company.

“We have our sights set firmly on another league win this year and I can assure you the players are determined to bring another Championship back to the proud city of Belfast. We’ll also be continuing a lot of our outreach work and educational programmes with communities in Northern Ireland so we are prepared for a very busy year.”
