ABERDEEN LYNX 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 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 on Saturday.
The Rigmar Group has been the main sponsor for the club for three years in a row, has pledged its support again following successful junior hockey camps and the continuing development of the junior team.
The not-for-profit organisation relies solely on donations, sponsorship from local companies and ticket sales and all money invested into the club is generated into the development of the youth teams in order to grow the club organically.
Lynx captain Jordan Leyden 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 and events such as taking two junior sides to Belfast wouldn’t have been achievable.
“These events are now fundamental dates in our calendar year and it is important to be able to educate and train our youngsters to the highest standard for those looking to advance in the sport.
“The 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 so we wish the Lynx the best of luck for the new season.”
