Raiders Ice Hockey offer the fans an arrangement to “own” the players shirts as part of the “Own And Loan” shirt sponsorship deal.
For £260 your agreed chosen name, company or cause is shown at the bottom of the rear of the shirt and will be seen during match nights, whether home or away. The sponsorship is also announced during the evening at every home game.
The shirts are a high quality embroidered design which is not available to the general public through the merchandise replica shirt section which are high quality printed.
The shirts would normally be presented to the player at a “meet the player” event and then presented back to the owning sponsor at the end of season player awards. An on ice photo with the player, and the shirt is also available as an alternative (and often as an additional bonus!)
This season we will again have 3 shirts to choose from:-
Our predominantly white shirt↓
Our predominantly blue shirt↓
Our “Northern” gold shirt. ↓
The gold shirts will be worn to all games, home and away, when we are playing teams in the Northern Conference of the National Ice Hockey League.
As has become recent tradition the shirt colour for home and away games will “swap” half way through the season. This is expected to mean that home games in 2021 will be played in the “white” shirt and then this will swap in the New Year with the blue shirt being worn at home for games in 2022.
The Raiders have for 6 seasons chosen to support a local charity and this is done by dedicating the warm up shirt to that charity, with a suitable design promoting the charity.
These are very popular and are priced at £140, a significant part of which is added to the teams donation to the charity at the end of the season. This season’s Charity is Strong Bones and more can be found on this great cause in the Charity page (see later)
