Warrior Sports and CHL skate into future with prolonged partnership
Three-year extension of Official Kit Supplier role builds on continued trust between partners
Zug, Switzerland – Warrior Sports Inc. has prolonged its partnership with the Champions Hockey League (CHL) for the second consecutive time. The agreement was brokered by Infront, a Wanda Sports Group company, and the exclusive media and marketing partner of the CHL.
The premium sporting goods manufacturer will remain the Official Kit Supplier for the next three seasons running from 2020/2021 to 2022/23.
The agreement includes supplying all CHL players with jerseys, hockey pants and gloves, as well as broad brand visibility on rink boards and penalty benches in competing ice hockey arenas across Europe.
Warrior Sports will also equip CHL game officials with helmets and jerseys and continue to supply CHL staff, Infront venue managers and all club staff with their high-end apparel.
Matthias Wolf, Managing Director of Warrior Sports Europe, said: "The Warrior Sports team is proud to continue to contribute with its products and service to the success and positive development of the CHL. Cooperation and collaboration with some of Europe's top clubs remains a key factor to ensure we best serve players and officials and we look forward to another successful three years of partnership."
This agreement follows last week's announcement of prolonging the partnership between Infront and the CHL until 2028, building on a foundation which has stimulated consistent growth since the competition's launch in 2014/15.
