9gc and subsidiary company 9 Hockey Management, have teamed up with Morzine-Avoriaz Ice Hockey Club as their international sponsorship consultancy.
The Ligue Magnus outfit who are based in the Rhone-Alpes region of France, are only eighty kilometers from Geneva which is an international hub for a number of global organisations.
Morzine-Avoriaz have recently signed Great Britain ice hockey international and 9 Hockey Management client Colin Shields, and this latest development further enhances the relationship between both organisations.
In addition, the agreement will see 9gc introduce Les Pingouins travel packages and merchandise into the UK market over the coming twelve months.
Gareth Chalmers of 9gc is delighted with the partnership with Morzine-Avoriaz Hockey Club:
“9gc and 9 Hockey Management are delighted to be joining forces with Morzine-Avoriaz Hockey Club.
“There have been a lot of connections to the United Kingdom in recent years with players such as James Hutchinson, Stevie Lyle, Ben O’Connor and now Colin Shields lacing up for Les Pingouins.
“We are looking forward to working with Morzine-Avoriaz and helping them establish a stronger international brand”.
Jerome Baud of Morzine-Avoriaz Hockey Club commented:
