Sponsorship & Advertising

There has never been a better time to come and be part of this great club

Establish in 2002, MK Lightning is Milton Keynes’s most successful sports team. Since returning to our refurbished arena in October 2014 we have regularly enjoyed large crowds, who have been wowed by our thrilling games and the great facilities.

We operate a thriving community programme across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas – engaging with schools, sports clubs and local businesses;  a fantastic opportunity to raise funds while enjoying a fantastic family night out.

Through our community programme we have created many new corporate relationships, attracting new fans and new players to the great game of ice hockey.

Match Night Sponsorship

Enjoy the night in style with your own private suite and viewing area to watch the game – a great way to entertain your company’s employees or clients. We provide a professional service in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Included in all packages is the opportunity to meet the players after the game, team photos, coupled with numerous PA announcements throughout the evening.

Entertaining or being entertained?

There is a choice of rooms available for buffet-style receptions with optional private bar and waitress service. Seats for the game are in prime locations behind the goals with separate access to your private suite. Special options vary, ranging from dropping the match puck to guided tour of the facilities and dressing rooms, and presenting the Man of the Match award. Packages can be tailored to your needs and budget, and start from as little as £350 per game.

Advertising Boards

The arena houses the oval- shaped ice pad, itself surrounded by barriers of toughened plastic ideal for advertising boards. Placing your logo on theses boards guarantees it will be seen by over 1000 people every week at our home games. Add to this 5 weekly disco skating sessions, numerous junior and recreational hockey matches and figure skating competitions, and that numbers soars.

Goalpost and penalty box advertising

Whenever the puck goes near the goal, all eyes in the Arena follow it … and many of the official images that make it to local and national media, as well as supporters’  own images – will include goal shots.  These give superb exposure to your brand for 30 home games this coming season.  And not just to MK supporters – opposition fans will visit from as far afield as Hull, Basingstoke and Swindon.

GOAL-POSTS

You can also sponsor the two penalty boxes and every time a player from either side is sent to the box for a rule infringement, your brand will be announced as a proud sponsor.  That’ll be heard by around 2,000 fans up to around 12 times a game….over 30 home games this coming season.

Ice and Zamboni advertising

What do you need to advertise a logo? How about a big white space that everyone can see? If that sounds like a good idea why not put your company logo into the ice! Do you know what a Zamboni is? No, it’s not an Italian ice cream but it is the name of the machine that cleans the ice! It is used before the game, twice during and after, not to mention over 50 times during the week.
