The Varsity Ice Hockey Program at the University of Colorado at Boulder is currently searching for sponsors for the up and coming year. Our schedule this year starts in October and ends in March, 2009. We expect to have exposure to 12,000 to 20,000 people over our 37 game schedule, which includes 23 home games. These dedicated fans tend to be college students, faculty, and alumni, as well as hockey families from Boulder and its neighboring communities. If you are a company that might benefit from reaching our fan base by partnering with us, please note the advertising and sponsorship packages we have put together.
