PotashCorp Named Tournament Title Sponsor
University Cup Host Committee Chairperson Grant Kook is pleased to announce PotashCorp as the title sponsor for the 2013 & 2014 CIS PotashCorp Men's Hockey University Cup hosted by the University of Saskatchewan.
PotashCorp was named the title sponsor at a news conference on Thursday at the Radisson Hotel. PotashCorp believes supporting local student-athletes has helped build a strong community. They welcome the opportunity to support the country's top University men's hockey teams vying for the CIS Championship.
"We are excited to help bring the University Cup back to Saskatoon," said Denita Stann, Vice-President of Investor and Public Relations for PotashCorp. "As a proud Canadian company, with hockey fans across our operations, we're pleased that the 2013 and 2014 PotashCorp CIS University Cup will once again shine a spotlight on CIS hockey and the hospitality of our home province."
"The PotashCorp University Cup host committee, Huskie Athletics and the University of Saskatchewan are very grateful for this contribution from PotashCorp," said Kook. "The generosity they've shown to the University over the years has made them a leader in the Saskatoon community and in support of University athletics and student-athletes. PotashCorp's title sponsorship raises the bar in terms of legacy and impact this world-class men's hockey event will leave on Saskatoon and Saskatchewan as a province."
PotashCorp has contributed more than $11 million dollars to the University of Saskatchewan in the past. In 1998 the company contributed $5 million dollars to create the PotashCorp Centre at the Edwards School of Business, as well as another $5 million to the University in 2005 for upgrades to Griffiths Stadium in PotashCorp Park to help Huskie Athletics host the 2006 Vanier Cup. The corporation has also gifted $300,000 to Huskie Athletics in the last two seasons to help with the student-athlete experience for each of the 15 CIS athletic teams at the University.
