Ogilvie returns as major sponsor for Glasgow Clan

Posted on Tuesday, 25 September 2018 15:32 in News

The Glasgow Clan are delighted to announce the return of Ogilvie as a major club sponsor for the 2018/19 season.

The partnership will once again see the Ogilvie branding appear on the ice at Braehead Arena as well as being the official player sponsor of Swedish forward Gerard Hanson.

Nick Hardy, Sales & Marketing Director at Ogilvie said: “Ogilvie are of course delighted to be once again sponsoring the Glasgow Clan. We’ve had a fantastic relationship for a number of years now and have our own growing Clan fanbase from our Head Office in Stirling.

“The branding we have with the club and around the ice helps raise our various Group company profiles in the region in a way that is harder to achieve elsewhere in sports marketing, and also compliments the other relationships we have with a number of other Elite League clubs.

“To say the least we have a fair bit of friendly rivalry within Ogilvie and our fans from Glasgow, Belfast and Sheffield. All in good spirit of course….but nobody ever wants to lose. We hope the Clan have a great season and are thrilled to be alongside again this year”.

Glasgow Clan’s Gerry McLaughlin commented: “Ogilvie aren’t just a great company that covers construction, automobiles and technology, they’re also a tremendous supporter of hockey in the UK. They go above and beyond, not just in their sponsorship support, but also in bringing new people to the sport we all love”
