SWINDON Wildcats will officially re-brand as the Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats for the upcoming 2021-22 season.

The Link Centre outfit is set to team up with the special care company which will see Bespoke Guardians logos and advertising on team jerseys and all around the rink.

The Wildcats also say that their new title sponsor, who is based just outside Swindon, will receive full digital coverage and business support from the team.

Commercial manager Sally Price, who worked closely with Bespoke Guardians' directors to secure the agreement, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Bespoke Guardians as our new title sponsor, we could not have paired with a better company.

"We share similar values and both organizations work with local children to help better our community. "Bespoke Guardians have an incredible team, that are all individually making such a huge difference to the lives of others, it really is an honor to be involved with them. Welcome to the hockey family!”

Meanwhile, Wildcats managing director, Steve Nell added: “It’s great news to have Bespoke Guardians on board as title sponsors.

"I’m looking forward to working with Rob and his team to ensure our partnership is mutually beneficial. "During a very difficult year for the sport, we have continued to have fantastic support from both our fans and sponsors, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank them all. With a new title sponsor we can look forward to an exciting 2021/22 season both on and off the ice.”

Rob Firmin, the managing director of Bespoke Guardians, was equally as thrilled to be partnering up the Wildcats.

He said: "As an avid Ice hockey fan and aspiring rec player, I am thrilled to pieces with the Wildcats accepting our title sponsorship for the new season.

"I am looking forward to working collaboratively with the team, Wildcats in the community and the fans to see what great things we can achieve this year.”

The Wildcats are set to begin the new National Ice Hockey League season in September.
