MONTREAL, July 13, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - At Speedy Glass® we've got our green on!
Speedy Glass® Saskatchewan announced today that they've signed on as a Proud Sponsor
of the Saskatchewan Roughriders for the 2012 Canadian Football League
season. With 13 locations across the province, you can bet Speedy Glass® and its employees count themselves in as members of the Rider Nation
and will no doubt be behind the team all the way to the Grey Cup!
This is Speedy Glass®' first major sports-team sponsorship in Canada, and they are delighted
it's with the Roughriders. Already part of the Saskatchewan community,
this partnership will help strengthen the Speedy Glass® brand. With Speedy Glass®' 75 provincial employees, this announcement evokes feelings of pride
and loyalty among them as their company now supports their team.
"We are glad that we can sponsor the Saskatchewan Roughriders… a team
with great history, pride, energy and not to forget loyal passionate
fans," says Éric Vincent, National Marketing Director of Belron® Canada. "This sponsorship demonstrates our commitment to our customers,
employees and their community. We wish the Saskatchewan Roughriders the
best of luck this season!"
Roughrider president and CEO Jim Hopson, a Speedy Glass® customer himself due to window chips while traveling the province for
events and appearances, says the partnership is exciting because of the
level of activation already present from the sponsor.
"We are so pleased to have Speedy Glass® as a new partner," said Hopson. "Not only are they a strong national
brand, but they also have branches across Saskatchewan which is
important to us as the province's team. We also love the concept of the
Chip Shot Field Goal contest as it gives our fans, and their customers,
a chance to come to a game and be on the field. It's a win-win all
With this sponsorship, Speedy Glass® customers now have the opportunity to enter a draw for a chance to win
4 tickets to a Rider home game and be chosen to participate in an
on-field promotion where they'll line up a 10-yard 'chip shot' field
goal as part of the "Chip Shot Field Goal contest presented by Speedy
Glass®." Visit your nearest Saskatchewan Speedy Glass® location for more information on how to enter.
