Racers secure major sponsorship deal with Friends Legal

Murrayfield Racers have agreed a major new sponsorship deal with Friends Legal, personal injury solicitors.

The agreement will see the Scottish law firm’s logo displayed on the team’s shirts and rinkside at Murrayfield Ice Rink next season.

Friends Legal is one of Scotland’s fastest growing personal injury firms. They also provide employment law advice, property dispute guidance and consumer advice relating to defective products or services.

The company has a strong belief in helping local communities and local charities, in particular those which focus on helping people overcoming challenges in life, often after injury.

Racers’ Director of Hockey, Tony Hand, says the deal with Friends Legal will help to keep hockey in Edinburgh moving forward.

“It’s great to have a new sponsor on board,” he said. “They have recognised the benefits of working with us and we’re certain this will be a great partnership for both sides.

“We are committed to delivering sustainable hockey at Murrayfield and firmly believe that working with respected companies like Friends Legal can help us to achieve our aims.”

The sponsorship is a huge boost to the Racers as they bid to build on last season’s success in the Scottish National League (SNL).

The reborn club claimed the SNL title and Stuart Robertson Cup last term and will be going all out to win even more silverware during the 2019/20 campaign.

The link-up with the Racers will give Friends Legal exposure to a vast audience, with over 400,000 people using Murrayfield Ice Rink every year.

In addition, the club receives media coverage on a wide range of local, national and international platforms, creating even more opportunities for sponsors to promote their brand.

Friends Legal Managing Partner, Tony O’Malley, says the Racers’ community ethos played an important part in the company’s decision to back the club.

“Friends Legal are delighted to support Murrayfield Racers at an exciting time for Edinburgh ice hockey,” he said.

“We identify with their community focus and commitment to providing sporting opportunities to children and young people.

“We were also struck by the hard work and ambition of Tony Hand and his team and the remarkable success the Racers have had in such a short space of time.”

The Racers wish to thank Friends Legal for their sponsorship and we hope our fans will support them by using their services should the need arise.
