OPSEU Local 596 Sponsorship’s

What Was It?

To promote community building and to engage in positive Union development I negotiated two sponsorship agreements with the Mattamy Athletic Centre (formally known as Maple Leaf Gardens).

  1. Negotiated sponsorship agreement with MAC for 2015/2016 Ryerson Rams Hockey Season.
    • In-Ice Logo placement.
    • Season Long VIP: Recognition on video board, priority seating & concession items.
    • Sponsor reel inclusion, Logo recognition as preferred partner on MAC Website.
  2. Negotiated sponsorship agreement with MAC for 2014 CIS Men’s Final 8 Basketball Championship.
    • Logo Recognition.
    • All-event VIP Passes & Floor level seating.
    • Single Session tickets with Private Fan Fest Access & Shoot Around on the Court.
    • 20 Single Session Charitable Donation Tickets with group welcome on video board.

I ran an online contest for members to win tickets to these events.

Participant Feedback:

2015/2016 Ryerson Rams Hockey Season:

Had a great time even though Ryerson lost. My fiancé came with me so it was like a date nite. We had hot dogs, drinks, popcorn and chocolate bars, cheered with fans along with the Ryerson cheerleaders, blow horn, drum which was really a pot and wooden spoon, cow bell….. lots fun.
Thanks again!

2014 CIS Men’s Final 8 Basketball Championship:

Went to the game and it was amazing! Did not realize how lively the fans are! It was really nice to see a bunch of our colleagues there as well, even if some came and went as their schedule permitted. To top it all, it was a really good game! The Rams men’s basketball team is so focused and motivated! Loved the coaches’ professionalism, and it was good to see our leaders there as well! Makes one feel like they belong!
Nicely done!

I attended. This was a good initiative. Hope to see other events that OPSEU is able to participate

I’d like to take a minute to thank you for being a part of the 2015 CIS Men’s Basketball Final 8 Championships. The event was a success, and none of it could have been possible without the support of our generous sponsors.
