BWT AQUA becomes Official Partner of the Swiss Ice Hockey Cup


International water technology group will be visible from the start of new season, which begins 19/20 September 2017

Zug, Switzerland – The Swiss Ice Hockey Cup strengthens its partner portfolio for the upcoming 2017/18 season with a top brand: BWT AQUA AG. The international manufacturer of water treatment and water technology systems offers a wide range of services related to water and will be visible as Official Partner of the competition. The partnership was closed by InfrontRingier Sports & Entertainment Switzerland, official marketing partner and organiser of the Swiss Ice Hockey Cup.

Expansion of presence in Swiss sports market

The partnership with the Swiss Ice Hockey Cup is another indication of BWT AQUA's enthusiasm for sports. Already an internationally established partner in motorsport and winter sports, the brand now strengthens its sponsorship commitment in Switzerland. After the visibility at the WTA Ladies Open Biel Bienne, the next sponsorship commitment is in ice hockey. The company already has a clear connection with the sport: BWT AQUA supplies the water in numerous Swiss ice hockey stadiums for the production of optimum quality ice.

The commitment is complemented by numerous activation rights that are perfectly tailored to the BWT AQUA brand. The ice hockey teams are equipped with bottled and mineralised tap water, which supports peak mental and physical performance due to the purity, quality and addition of magnesium.

Hannelore Illerhaus, Head of Marketing and Communications at BWT Schweiz, said: “The Swiss Ice Hockey Cup offers an innovative advertising and communication platform in a traditionally Swiss sport, which is a perfect fit for us due to shared values such as fairness, accuracy, honesty and discipline.”

Comprehensive visibility

The BWT AQUA logo will be visible on the shirts of all players in the Swiss Ice Hockey Cup. In addition, BWT AQUA receives valuable advertising space in stadiums and is integrated into the newly conceived TV and print campaigns for the competition.
