The natural gas supplier is sponsoring the KHL clubs HC Slovan Bratislava, Dinamo Riga, HC Vityaz and the MHL club HC Dinamo St. Petersburg
Kassel. Winter sport and natural gas – an ideal combination: WINGAS is a natural gas supplier that operates throughout Europe and is now strengthening its ice hockey commitment by supporting in particular the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). It is one of the world’s strongest leagues and is increasingly gaining a foothold in Europe. WINGAS will be the main sponsor of the three KHL clubs Slovan Bratislava, Dinamo Riga and HC Vityaz this season.
The company, based in Kassel in the middle of Germany, will also support the MHL team (junior league) HC St. Petersburg, which maintains a strong partnership with SKA St. Petersburg, the team currently leading the KHL Western Conference. Since last summer, WINGAS has sponsored the ice hockey club EC Kassel Huskies from the city where it is headquartered.
WINGAS is one of Europe’s largest trading companies for Russian natural gas – and no other sport is as closely connected with Russia as ice hockey. “A commitment to sports – especially ice hockey – just made perfect sense,” notes Nicholas Neu, Head of Corporate Communications at WINGAS, explaining the company's increased sponsoring of ice hockey.
