Scotiabank signs NHL sponsorship with Rogers
Scotiabank has signed a six-year National Hockey League sponsorship agreement with Rogers Communications. Under the terms of the agreement, Scotiabank will be the title sponsor of Wednesday Night Hockey, a presenting sponsor of Sunday Night Hockey and a sponsor of Hockey Night in Canada. The agreement will include multi-platform brand exposure on various Rogers properties. Scotiabank will also participate in a series of fan initiatives and community programs. The deal also includes non-NHL-related advertising. This is the first NHL sponsorship agreement Rogers has formed since acquiring the national broadcast and multimedia rights of the NHL last year.
"Hockey matters to Canadians, and it matters to us," said Scott Moore, president of Sportsnet and NHL Properties at Rogers. "Scotiabank has a tremendous tradition of supporting the NHL and grassroots hockey across Canada. They are passionate about our communities and are aggressive on innovation. This partnership is a continued strategic association with the sport Canadians love, and we look forward to taking fans on this exciting journey."
