Lightning Announce More Sponsorship Support with Addition of Witan Studios

As the Elite Ice Hockey League season enters its decisive second half, the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning welcome another new sponsor - city centre workspace, Witan Studios.

Witan Studios will become the corporate sponsor of young British netminder Adam Goss - named as Man of the Match in Lightning’s 28th December road game against Belfast Giants, & in our first away game of 2019 in Fife.

The Witan Studios name will be announced at the beginning of every home match when Adam dresses for action and whenever he is involved in a goal or penalty incident, as well as being included in our glossy monthly magazine and on our website,

Centrally located on Witan Gate, less than a 10-minute walk from MK Central train station, Witan Studios is the perfect place for creativity and energetic businesses to prosper, providing unique spaces to work, meet and eat.  The Studios are all about new ideas, sharing knowledge and creating connections between our members and the wider MK community

Witan Studios provides its members with the security of an annual lease with rent, service charge, broadband and insurance combined in a single monthly fee.  Every Studio comes with 24/7 access, fully furnished complete with kitchens and all mod cons, breakout spaces and access to the on-site Boardroom, showers, garden and secure bike storage.

Witan Studios is already home to several very successful local businesses including another Lightning sponsor, City Apartments.  In fact the relationship between Witan Studios and MK Lightning began thanks to City Apartments, who invited Witan Studios’ Community Manager Heather Manning  to the Lightning’s home match against Belfast Giants.  Heather was so impressed with the experience, strength of local support and the club, that she decided to find out more about working with MKL

MK Lightning Commercial Manager, Sarah Jane Smyth, said: “First and foremost, we’re extremely happy to welcome Witan Studios to the Lightning!  We’re delighted to be able to give exposure to another local business, to help the local economy grow.

“Witan Studios joining us as we enter the important second half of our season is a fantastic show of confidence in the club’s ambition and we’ll aim to repay that with real progress in the league. Hopefully this is just the start of a long and happy relationship between Witan Studios and the MK Lightning!”

Witan Studios’ Community Manager Heather Manning said, “We are so looking forward to starting 2019 with this exciting new partnership!  MKL has an amazing local presence which is growing in vibrancy and numbers.  Witan Studios are all about supporting local growth and everything MK.  We are very proud to cheer on Adam and the team for the rest of the season - Let’s Go Lightning!”
