From Database Patching to Pucks: Xynomix renew sponsorship of the Nottingham Panthers
Xynomix have entered their fourth year as sponsors of Nottingham’s successful ice hockey team, the Nottingham Panthers, as part of a wider aim to engage with the local community.
In the first year of sponsorship, the Xynomix logo was emblazoned on players’ shirts and helmets. Four years on, a new sponsorship deal has been agreed that sees Xynomix take on a more aptly technical role as sponsors of the official Panthers Radio channel.
Sponsorship of the Panthers is just one of the ways in which Xynomix contributes locally. Other recent projects include participation in the Erewash Triathlon 2009 to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis, and the implementation of a cycle to work scheme that has seen over 50% of employees switch from petrol to pedal power in a matter of months.
Says Xynomix Marketing Executive, Jules Pedersen: “Xynomix are always keen to engage with the local community and we are particularly proud to sponsor the Panthers. A number of us here are ice hockey fans. The Panthers are a great team and give the people of Nottingham, young and old, the opportunity to see some fantastic ice hockey”
The Panthers have an impressive recent history, winning the 2006/2007 Playoff Championships and the Challenge Cup in 2007/2008.
Having finished joint second in the Elite League last season, Xynomix and other Panthers fans alike are hoping for another very successful run of form from the team in 2009/2010. Whilst there may be some way to go to the end of the season, the Panthers already occupy top spot of the EIHL table and look likely to build on last year’s success.
Xynomix aim to continue their relationship with the Nottingham Panthers for years to come.
