"For us getting out of the sun into a rather cool environment and highly entertaining is an experience in of itself. Who doesn't love a good ice hockey game?"
Nice, France (PRWEB UK) 19 September 2014
After an exciting first year of sponsoring Les Aigles, the first athletic type of sponsorship by Nice Properties, the company decided to continue on for a second year as it became clear that hockey is gaining momentum in Nice.
Michael Fusaro, CEO of Nice Properties explains, "Sponsoring a hockey team is a first for our company, usually we like to sponsor a charity of some sort. However, in recent years Nice has become a mecca for sports such as the Tour de France, the Ironman Triathlon as well as the recent construction of the new Allianz Riviera Stadium to host our soccer games. Knowing how important the role of sports plays as a lifestyle here on the Cote d'Azur, we wanted to be able to help support our young athletes whose rare "winter" type sport for this region might get overlooked by more popular sport activities."
Fusaro further adds, "For us getting out of the sun into a rather cool environment and highly entertaining is an experience in of itself. Who doesn't love a good ice hockey game?"
The league Nice Hockey Cote d'Azur, situated in Nice in the Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region, was formed in 2003 and is quite unusual for being in a sunny beach area that dotes sunshine 300 days a year.
The team's president is Jean Francois Ropart, managed by Alexandre Duyck and is trained by Slovakian borne coach and former hockey player Stan Sutor.
The Division 1 Championship France Cup begins September 27th and runs until December 25th.
