We are proud to announce growing Canadian corporate support for Team Homan as we kick off the 2017-2018 season.
Our first event starts this week with the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling Tour Challenge. We're very excited to announce Pinty's as our title sponsor again this season.
"Pinty's has been an incredible supporter of curling and has been a huge part of growing the Grand Slam of Curling into a world class season-long sports event," skip Rachel Homan said in Regina ahead of the first Pinty's Grand Slam of the season. "Pinty's has especially helped bring the women's game to the same level of exposure and competition as the men," Rachel added.
We've captured six Grand Slams in our team's career and we've been very privileged to have Pinty's along for this incredible ride.
"Pinty's remains proud to partner with Team Homan in the 2017-2018 season. We look forward to working with the Team and various sponsors to reach even higher highs", said Pinty's Vice President Tony Spiteri.
We're also excited to have Frontera Energy return this season to our team of sponsors. Frontera has also been a long-time supporter of our team and helped with our rise to the top of the World Curling Tour standings.
Egg Farmers of Ontario, a familiar name for anyone in our home province or who watched us compete at the World Curling Championships last season, has proudly joined our team of sponsors for this critical season and beyond, signing a four year deal with Team Homan.
"Egg farmers across Ontario are proud to be part of this eggs-citing new partnership. As the official breakfast of Team Homan, we are honoured to be able to help fuel this team as they compete at home and on the world stage," said Egg Farmers of Ontario Chair Scott Graham.
On the heels of our World Curling Championship gold medal in Beijing we're also proud to announce support from BOOST. This great nutritional comes to the Team courtesy of Nestle Canada, representing another investment by the brand in the sport of curling. BOOST is also the title sponsor of The National, a Pinty's Grand Slam event that we captured in 2015.
The BOOST National will return to Sault Ste. Marie November 14-19 and we're looking forward to competing in it again.
AMJ Campbell has sponsored curling in Canada for decades and is also an official supplier of the Canadian Olympic Committee. Team Homan is proud to announce AMJ Campbell will now be supporting us on our quest for gold this year. AMJ Campbell, Canada's largest residential and commercial moving company, is the title sponsor of the Shorty Jenkins' Classic September 14-17.
Aside from sharp new jerseys this season, we're also sporting new brooms. We're excited to again have the support of Goldline Curling Supplies, the largest curling retailer. This season you'll notice we're using the fantastic new Goldline Air Head which is the lightest curling broom in the game and is now WCF approved.
We'd also like to thank Faces Magazine for its continued sponsorship of our team. Faces has been with us for several years and continue to highlight our accomplishments and those of people across our hometown in Ottawa's premiere monthly publication.
We couldn't compete at the level we do without the support of NF Functional Performance and Pro Physio & Sport Medicine Centres. These two Ottawa companies have helped us achieve and maintain the healthy lifestyle that is key to our world championship success. Thanks to NF Functional Performance and to Paul Colebrook and Pro Physio & Sport Medicine Centres we hope to repeat that success this season.
As we look toward December we are very excited to compete in the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials (Roar of the Rings) in our hometown. We hope to recreate some of the magic this year that the Ottawa Senators brought to our city last year. Thanks to the Senators for their continued support this season.
This journey we're on would be impossible without the generous support of these companies. They believe in us and we can't thank them enough for helping us achieve our dreams. We've had to make many sacrifices over the years to get to the top. Pinty's, Frontera, Egg Farmers of Ontario, BOOST, AMJ Campbell, Goldline, Faces, NF Functional Performance, Pro Physio & Sport Medicine Centres and the Ottawa Senators are helping us be the best in the world.
We'd also like to thank Baslaw and Associates for helping us gain the support of these great organizations. For more information about sponsorship opportunities with Team Homan:
