Hockey Edmonton scores a hat trick with ENMAX sponsorship

/ Edmonton

​Hockey Edmonton and ENMAX Corporation today announced ENMAX will be the first official sponsor of the 2014 ENMAX Hockey Edmonton City Championships. This is the first time Hockey Edmonton has secured a major sponsor for the Championships, which will run from March 1 - 20, 2014 and feature 527 participating teams from Edmonton and surrounding communities.

"Our championships have grown over the years and we felt that a partnership with a respected company like ENMAX would enhance our event and assist teams to reduce their overall operating costs," said Betty Chmilar, President of Hockey Edmonton. "As ENMAX was already sponsoring other Alberta minor hockey initiatives, we felt the connection was a perfect fit for our hockey teams."

ENMAX's contribution to Hockey Edmonton includes:

  1. Hoodies for all novice players to wear during the season, championships and beyond, as well as additional dollars for each team to reduce the cost of hockey, augment team operations, or use towards upcoming tournaments;
  2. Funds to help cover additional ice time for Hockey Edmonton teams;
  3. Sponsorship funds for the 2014 ENMAX Hockey Edmonton City Championships.

"We have been a proud supporter of minor hockey across Alberta for 14 years running," said Gianna Manes, ENMAX President and CEO. "In addition to the upcoming ENMAX Hockey Edmonton City Championships, we have also sponsored Pond Hockey by ENMAX to provide an opportunity for kids throughout the province to play exciting games with their WHL and NHL heroes. We look forward to this exciting partnership with Hockey Edmonton to support players in their quest to be the best on the ice."

ENMAX is supporting 211 minor hockey teams in 13 different Alberta locations this year. Of these, 118 novice teams are participating in the ENMAX Hockey Edmonton City Championships.
Media will be sent additional launch information and advised of photo opportunities during the championships shortly.
