Ice Hockey UK and Lucas are excited to announce a new three-year sponsorship of all Great Britain teams.

The main team sponsorship includes GB Men, GB Women, GB U20s, GB U18s and GB U18s Women.

Lucas branding will appear on GB shirts, while they will also be the main headline sponsors for next month’s Olympic Qualifiers and the prestigious pre-World Championship match with Canada in May, both taking place at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham.

Lucas are a global supplier of automotive components with a rich history dating back over 100 years, making it the longest continually supplying brand in the automotive industry.

Andy French, Ice Hockey UK general secretary, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Lucas back on-board with Great Britain for the next three years.

“Their support so far has been unbelievable and we are excited to be linking up with them again.

“Lucas are a well-known brand and their green is famous throughout the world.

“We feel we have the perfect partnership with them and looking forward to working with Lucas for many years to come.”

Ross Toomey, managing director of SMP Europe, said: “We are very pleased to be able to build upon our partnership with Ice Hockey UK from last year.

“This was a very easy decision to make for us and we are proud to be supporting once again in an even bigger year for all programs.

“It’s a very exciting period for both IHUK and ourselves – and we look forward to offering our support and resources over the next three years.”
