After three massively successful years sponsoring football's National League, we're excited to announce we've extended our sporting reach with a two-year partnership with English Basketball League One's Hemel Storm. As a company of sports enthusiasts who like to give back to the local community the opportunity to get involved with the Patron's Cup winning side was too good an opportunity miss.
The partnership will ensure the continued success of one of Hemel's go to places on a Saturday night for lots of families and Basketball fans alike. Andy Alderson, Managing Director commented on the sponsorship, "We're so impressed with what the management team are already doing at Hemel Storm. Their community focus reflects our core values; we've been a hands on sponsor for The National League and we want to bring this same energy to Hemel Storm. Fan engagement and involvement will be key to the success of the sponsorship and we can't wait to get started."
Hemel Storm plays to packed crowds at Sportspace, Hemel Hempstead and represents the town across the country at venues from Newcastle to Worthing. Tony Humphrey who has been leading the discussions with Vanarama on Storm's behalf said: "We are absolutely delighted and thankful to Vanarama for their incredible support which will enable the team and Club to develop and continue to entertain our growing fan base.
