GTHL Welcomes Canadian Tire as a Premier Sponsor
Canadian Tire Logo will be on all GTHL Sweaters.
TORONTO (October 13, 2010) – The Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) and Canadian
Tire Corporation Limited announced today that they have signed a 2-year agreement making
Canadian Tire one of the League’s Premier Sponsors.
As part of the deal, 530 teams and a total of 10,000 GTHL players will proudly sport Canadian
Tire’s iconic triangle and the NHL®’s logo. Having recently signed a five-year partnership with
the NHL® and launched the new Canadian Tire Hockey School, the partnership with the GTHL
is an opportunity for Canadian Tire to support the sport in the Toronto region. This is the first
time in the League’s history that a sponsor’s logo will be featured on every sweater. “We are
very excited about our new partnership with Canadian Tire. It is a brand that has been part of
Canadian hockey for generations and we’re proud to be associated with it,” said GTHL
President John Gardner.
“For nearly 90 years, Canadian Tire has equipped millions of hockey players with their first
skates, stick, helmet and pads,” said Duncan Fulton, vice-president, corporate affairs for
Canadian Tire. “We’re happy to continue this tradition and to partner with the GTHL.”
Canadian Tire Stores will also be donating $20,000 per year to help GTHL children who are in
financial need. “Canadian Tire’s passion for helping kids in need is refreshing and admirable,”
said Gardner. “We will continue to look for new opportunities with Canadian Tire Jumpstart to
help as many kids as we can.”
