Aberdeen’s premier ice hockey team has secured a five-figure sum in key sponsorship from a leading oil and gas services company ahead of its upcoming season in the Scottish National League (SNL).

 

The Aberdeen Lynx Ice Hockey team has secured a major sponsorship deal with The Rigmar Group, ahead of its first game of the season in the SNL Autumn Cup against arch-rivals Dundee Tigers, taking place next weekend (Saturday 5 September) at the Linx ice Arena.

The Rigmar Group, which has been the main sponsor for the popular club for three years in a row, has pledged its support again following a number of successful junior hockey camps and the continuing development of the junior team.

 

 

Jordan Leyden, captain of the Aberdeen Lynx ice hockey team, said: ”We are absolutely delighted to have The Rigmar Group as our main sponsor for a third year in a row. Without their continued support, we would not be able to develop our juniors in the way we have over the past few years and events such as taking two of the junior sides to Belfast last season and establishing the annual hockey camps would not have been achievable. These events are now fundamental dates in our calendar year and it is really important to be able to educate and train our youngsters to the highest standard for those looking to advance in the sport.

 

“The Aberdeen Lynx ethos is to ensure the majority of the money coming into the club goes directly to the junior development programmes, which is something the whole club is extremely proud of. This sponsorship, and indeed that of all our sponsors, is key to the club’s progression and will ensure we can continue to develop the younger teams.”

 

CEO of Rigmar, Keith Nelson, said:   “As with our Business Activities, Rigmar believe that it is essential to develop young talent.  One of our Staff Members, Kevin Nelson (no relation), is a Lynx Player and this creates a level of interest within the Business for the Sport.  Good Luck to all at Lynx for the 2015/2016 Season.”

 

This year the club has already doubled the number of season ticket holders in comparison to 2014 and has frozen 2014/15 ticket prices for the 2015/16 season. Fans can now purchase their tickets online in advance of games from: www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/101689.

Single tickets are priced at £7 for adults, £5 for kids and season tickets are also available at £70 for adults and £50 for kids.

 

The Aberdeen Lynx will face-off against the Dundee Tigers at 7.15pm on Saturday 5 September at the Linx Ice Arena.
