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. It is a great way to support your team and your favourite player and at the end of the season you have a unique item of Raiders memorabilia, significantly different from the merchandise replicas.
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 have 2 playing shirts to choose from. However this does leave us room for a special “celebration” shirt later in the year. Our main shirts are therefore:-
Our predominantly white shirt and predominantly blue shirt↓
As has become recent tradition the shirt colour for home and away games will “swap” half way through the season. This should mean that home games in 2022 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 2023.
The Raiders have for 7 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. It raises funds for deserving causes and raises awareness of these local charities.
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 Mitchells Miracles and more can be found on this great cause in the Charity page. As with previous seasons we intend to play one whole game in these shirts when our charity can join us for an additional fund raising event when our 50:50 proceeds will also be donated.

Thanks to all our amazing sponsors that help keep the Raiders on ice. We cannot over-state how fundamental all fund raising is for keeping our team not only on ice, but growing season by season. The incredible “sold out” signs every season on the shirt sponsorship are a big part of your support.
