GalxC renews ice hockey sponsorship

UK: Hampshire-based chiller company GalxC Cooling Services has renewed its title sponsorship for UK ice hockey team Basingstoke Bison for the 2022-23 season.

Basingstoke Bison currently competes in the NIHL National League and plays its matches at Basingstoke’s 2,000-seat-capacity Planet Ice Silverdome.

GalxC, which designs, installs, services and hires cooling equipment including ice rink glycol chillers, is renewing its sponsorship of its local team after a successful first season last year.

“Having witnessed first-hand last season the passion shown by the players on the ice, the team at GalxC is thrilled to have their logo featured above the Bison crest on the playing jerseys for another season,” said GalxC director Iain Hazell.
