Academy Sponsor Announcement

The Sheffield Ice Hockey Academy are delighted to announce that TIVAC ALLOYS Ltd are the principal sponsor to our new home jersey and tracksuit. The TIVAC ALLOYS Ltd logo will be on every home jersey for the next two seasons as well as the Academy’s new tracksuits for the next season.

Neil Rushby, the Academy chairperson had this to say, “This announcement is a significant one in terms of helping the club move forward. Ice hockey is a very expensive sport and this partnership will help us carry on with our progression plans. We are very ambitious and want to extend our programme to not only on ice but off ice fitness and other initiatives and all financial contributions help make this possible for more young athletes. It helps us to keep the costs to our parents as low as we possibly can to allow as many kids to take part in what is one the most dynamic team sports. Richard is invested in the club through his sons playing for us already and having him want to contribute more and help the club to grow even further is great.”

Richard Matthewman, owner of TIVAC ALLOYS Ltd said “both my sons love playing for Sheffield and it was an easy decision for me to get involved. I have been involved in sponsoring the Sheffield Steelers, Sheffield Steeldogs and the Hull Pirates but this partnership is one that gives me great personal pleasure. I am confident that the partnership between myself and the Academy is one that we can grow and I look forward to being able to share in the success of the club.”

The club would like to thank Richard for his support and look forward to working with him. 

There are still sponsorship opportunities available. If you are interested in getting involved with the Academy, enquiries need to be made to or
