Ovation Sports AG, the IIHF’s appointed agency for the organization and marketing of the Victoria Cup 2008, has appointed SUI Sport Units of Innovation AG (SUI 08) as the exclusive Corporate Hospitality partner for this year’s inaugural event.
Victoria Cup 2008 is taking place at the newly rebuilt PostFinance-Arena in Bern, Switzerland on September 30th / October 1st and features the New York Rangers against SC Bern on the first night and against the defending European Club Champion HK Metallurg Magnitogorsk from Russia on the second night. The event features several “firsts” for Swiss ice hockey fans. SC Bern has never played against an NHL squad. And, the NHL has not played against a Russian Club anywhere in the world in the past 17 years. This set up and the attractive side events make the Victoria Cup 2008 a “once in a lifetime” event.
The Victoria Cup is the competition formed by the IIHF and NHL that features the best European Ice Hockey Club against an NHL team. The spectacle will take place each year in late September at the start of both the European and North American ice hockey seasons.
“SUI 08 has an excellent track record for high quality service and delivery in the corporate hospitality field. We are delighted to be working closely together for the first ever Victoria Cup”, said Ovation Sports COO Tom Huston. “This very much complements our ticket sales on www.ticketportal.com
where we have experienced a great demand.”
“We feel honored to be the selected Corporate Hospitality partner for this prestigious event. The Victoria Cup 2008 in Bern stands for great sport and entertainment and Switzerland is crazy about ice hockey”, says Oliver Niedermann, Partner of SUI 08. “It will be a great opportunity also for the corporate sector to offer guests something special.”
Corporate and VIP hospitality packages are now available for this once in a lifetime, must see event. For purchase information and further inquiries please contact Thomas Hirt from SUI 08 at +41 44 250 2108 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
