The current jersey sponsors of the Manchester Mayhem Para Ice Hockey Team, will have their name on the world stage.

For PLS Solicitors have been given the opportunity to sponsor Team GB’s jerseys for this year’s World Championships in Berlin.

Proud PLS sponsor Dan Hickey explained: “As sponsors of Manchester Mayhem we have seen, first-hand, the dedication and hard work these athletes put into their challenging sport. They really are an inspiration to those who have been fortunate to watch or play.

“We also know the fundraising challenges they face and we hope this sponsorship can help the squad focus their attention on the ice to do us proud in representing our country at the World Championships in November.”

Getting to the World Championships is expensive and each player and their teams are tasked with raising enough funds to enable them to compete on the world stage.

This is only possible with the support of sponsors and fundraising events.

Karl Nicholson, captain of the Manchester Mayhem and alternate captain for GB said: “It’s always a proud moment to don brand new shirts for a tournament.

“To have our own sponsors PLS Solicitors step in and provide these superb shirts for the entire GB team is wonderful. Knowing that we have the support of such sponsors is a real boost to our confidence and our drive to win.”

Tyler Christopher, team GB’s new captain, is just as equally impressed as he said: “The new jerseys provided by PLS Solicitors look great.

"This sponsorship represents us moving into a new era and thanks to PLS Solicitors we can look forward to wearing our new strip with pride at our first game.”
