It's a unique experience brand new to NAHL hockey and a majority of junior hockey. Be the first to set the standard for the entire league!
*NEW* Post-Game Skate
The IceRays offer ice skating to the public after every home game at the American Bank Center. Not only is it one of the only opportunity to ice skate in the Coastal Bend but it's also a chance for fans and customers to skate with and meet the IceRays! Your company gets name and logo recognition as the official sponsor as well as a chance to directly connect with the Corpus Christi community.
All sports fans constantly look to the scoreboard for up to the second game information. Ice hockey fans look to the scoreboard several times during a game for the game time, the score, power plays, penalty killing, shots on goal, etc. Your name and logo will generate countless impressions during the game and over the entire season. There is a limited amount of space available.
Game Jerseys & Specialty Jerseys
Receive great exposure all season long by placing your logo on our jerseys. They're visible both in-person and online throughout the country including on video, photos, and in local media! You can also join us for a specialty night and sponsor these limited edition jerseys. See your logo on this special uniform that will be auctioned off for charity. Your logo will last beyond its time on the ice!
Ice hockey dasher boards are one of the most powerful forms of advertisements in all of professional sports. According to a study by Ernest & Young, a 3’ x 8’ dasherboard with your logo will generate up to 84 million impressions per season. Your dasherboard will remain visible at all American Bank Center events where the boards are not required to be removed or covered. You will receive more impressions with post-game skating, youth and adult hockey leagues.
Reach new customers and maintain your image and community awareness by displaying your logo and message on a 3’ x 8’ banner located directly above the seats inside the American Bank Center and around the entire arena.
The IceRays have held the NAHL's top attendance for each of the last two seasons, averaging 100,000 fans per season.. Maximize your brand image and your marketing dollars with your logo painted in the ice. Ice logos are visible during all ice events and are often visible during television and newspaper highlight coverage. Ice logos are one of the premier signage opportunities available!
Game Day Pucks
Though small, this partnership packs a punch! Have your company logo placed on the back of every puck used at IceRays home games. If a puck travels out of play, not only will the fan receive a free souvenir but also have your company name enshrined forever!
Power Play & Penalty Kill
This is some of the most exciting action during an IceRays hockey game. When a penalty is committed, that team plays short one player and takes a disadvantage to their opponent, who earns a power play. That section of the game is some of the highest-paced and most intense moments with a lot of shooting and a high potential for goals. Your company will receive both logo recognition on the videoboard and name recognition announced within the American Bank Center during each instance of the IceRays Power Play and Penalty Kill.
Team Bus & Zamboni
Two types of transportation, one great way to display your company! The IceRays Team Bus transports our players to every road game, traveling throughout the state of Texas as well as through the Midwest all the way to Minnesota and beyond! It's great exposure for the traveling consumer and visible a ways away. The Zamboni is a "truck-like" ice cleaning machine that enters the ice between periods to groom the playing surface for both teams. Slap your logo on the side of the zamboni and see it fly across the ice surface just before each period and gain more recognition for fans at each IceRays home game!
The IceRays Blimp
The IceRays Blimp offers a dynamic and unique way to present your company. Placing your company logo on the 13 foot IceRays Blimp is a great way to promote your company and brand. The IceRays Blimp flies through the American Bank Center before the game, during the two intermissions and after the game. Want a hands-on approach
Rink Wrap Signage
There are a few prime, unique locations to display your company's message around the arena: along the glass. Rink wrap is a transparent display that is see-through when looking onto the ice from the stands but displays the artwork when looking up into the stands. It serves as an alternative to a dasherboard sign and covers long strips of the playing area. The IceRays offer four different locations for rink wrap signage around the playing area: attacking zone back glass, defensive zone black glass, home and road penalty boxes, and home and road benches. All four areas are visible in-arena, in official game night photography, and on television coverage.
Reach thousands of fans by promoting your company and brand on the back of individual game tickets. This is an extremely effective way to reach a large number of fans with your brand, your message and a special incentive/offer. The ticket backs often offer a promotion where the fans redeem their tickets for a special discount at the sponsoring company.
Fan of the Game
The IceRays will select the craziest and most outrageous fan during every home game. This lucky fan will be presented with a $25 gift certificate for IceRays merchandise during the second intermission. The sponsor will present the fan with the gift certificate and any type of prize the sponsor wishes to present at all 30 home games. At the end of the season, all individual game winners will be invited back to compete for the honor of the craziest and most outrageous fan of the season. A special prize will be awarded by the IceRays and the sponsor.
Sweetheart of the Game
The IceRays will select one lovely lady during every home game. This lucky fan will be presented with a red rose and a $25 gift certificate for IceRays merchandise during the first intermission. The sponsor will present the fan with the rose and the gift certificate and any type of prize the sponsor wishes to present at all 30 home games.
Game Night Sponsor
Your company becomes the official sponsor for an entire IceRays game night. Your message will receive optimal recognition with all those in attendance and your company, brand and logo will be featured on all pre-game promotional spots in print media, radio and television. The Game Night Sponsor is responsible for all the costs associated with any give-away items. Game Night sponsorship includes placing banners around the American Bank Center, announcements during the game, sampling opportunities in front of or on the concourse of the American Bank Center and merchandise give-away and promotions. Merchandise giveaway items can be hockey related items such as bobble heads, pucks, miniature sticks, etc. or items that represent your business. These items require the IceRays logo and can be produced by your company. If you choose, the IceRays can produce these items and your company will be invoiced for the cost.
Keep your company and brand in front of potential customers all season long by placing your logo on the IceRays pocket schedules. 100,000 full color wallet-sized pocket schedules will be distributed at all of our home games to all of our fans and to businesses all around our All-American City!
