Brandt sponsors Mastercard Memorial Cup
Regina-based agricultural equipment maker Brandt has signed-on as a sponsor of the Mastercard Memorial Cup tournament, conducted by the Canadian Hockey League. This will be the 100th anniversary of the junior hockey championship. Brandt will be the presenting sponsor of the opening ceremonies, a pre-game concert and party in Confederation Park and the opening reception. The company will also be the title sponsor of the Brandt Celebration Zone, the event's main entertainment venue. The 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup will run from May 17 to 27 in Regina.
"We are proud Reginans and we've been strongly committed to supporting this event since day one," said Shaun Semple, president and CEO of the Brandt Group of Companies. "The 100th anniversary of the Mastercard Memorial Cup, coinciding with the centennial of our own Regina Pats, is something that will never happen again and we're proud to sponsor an anniversary party on an epic scale, a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of our hometown hockey legacy."
