The Smailes Goldie Hull Pirates are extremely excited to reveal another new sponsor. SPORTSINSURE, powered by Hendersons Insurance Brokers, will join us as associate sponsors for the 2018/19 season. They will be a significant and integral part of our corporate partnership team and we are proud that they have chosen the Hull Pirates to represent their brand.

Joe Henderson joined us for a quick chat saying:
"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Hull Pirates as Associate Sponsor for this season. This is a sport that we have supported locally since 2006 and have watched develop throughout Hull over the years.

It is teams like the Pirates who have contributed to putting Hull on the map in terms of skills and sport.  As a company we like to support talent on all levels and this local element marries up with our ethos of having national coverage but remaining true to our roots at a local level".

We couldn't agree more with Joe about having a shared ethos around wanting to be an integral part of the local community, but with success at a national level. We could not be happier with this partnership and the faith that Joe has shown in our organisation, having an associate sponsor of the calibre of SPORTSINSURE provides us with a level of stability rarely seen within British ice hockey.

Owner Shane Smith told us:
"This partnership is one that is really significant as we move forward as an organisation. I am really excited to see what the future holds and there is an element of true satisfaction seeing the hardwork of the past 3 years bearing fruit.

This organisation is growing in stature and strength and I am very proud of all those involved".

Tomorrow night is our season curtain raiser against a gritty, well coached Whitley side. Face-off is at 6pm, make sure you are there!!
