The 2007 – 08 Edmonton Oil Kings inaugural WHL season is presented by ATB Financial.
In what is truly a benchmark partnership when it comes to corporate sponsorship and any Western Hockey League franchise, ATB Financial’s commitment will include involvement in every aspect of the hockey club – from game day presentation, ticketing, website sponsorship, marketing and even the team bus.
“This will be a year of firsts for the Oil Kings, and we wanted to make an unprecedented move in the business community by associating ourselves with a first class organization and major player like ATB Financial,” said Nick Wilson, Vice President of Business Operations & Alternate Governor for the Oil Kings. “We knew that in order to make our inaugural season a success we’d have to align ourselves with a ‘KING-sized’ company that already has an established reputation of being connected to the community. ATB Financial fit the bill perfectly.”
“ATB Financial is proud to sponsor the Oil Kings as they return to the City of Edmonton,” says Dave Mowat, President & CEO of ATB Financial. “Their commitment to excellence and their involvement in the community align perfectly with the values of ATB.”
The 2007–08 Edmonton Oil Kings season kicks off with a home-and-home series against the Kootenay Ice starting on Thursday, September 20th, at Rexall Place.
The pre-season schedule features the inaugural Edmonton Oil Kings Pre-Season Tournament at Servus Credit Union Place in St. Albert, from September 1st – 3rd. The Oil Kings will host Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Regina and Swift Current in a series of exhibition games.
