Tivac have agreed to be the away blue shirt Principle sponsor for the 2020-2022 seasons, and continue with sponsoring the tracksuits for the 2020-21 season.

Martin Peters, Sheffield IHA chair announced “We are delighted to have the continued support of Tivac Alloys and the sponsorship Richard Matthewman has given to our academy over the past year. Richard has extended his support for this year to help Sheffield Scimitars along with the juniors. The amount of investment Richard has contributed will enable the club invest into the development of players from our U9s through to the Scimitars team. Richard was keen, as a local businessman, by investing into the local community and in the sport his sons both thoroughly enjoy during the 5 years they have played for Sheffield IHA.”

Additional to this, we are delighted to announce Tivac Alloys Ltd as the principal sponsor to the Sheffield Scimitars NIHL team for the 2020-21 season. The Tivac Alloys Ltd logo will be on the home white jersey for the next season as well the away shirt for the next two seasons. Tivac Alloys have also agreed to sponsor the Scimitars off-ice shorts and tee-shirts for the up and coming season.

Scimitars Head Coach Steve Weeks said "I am really pleased to see Tivac Alloys not only continue to support the juniors within our academy, but to also see further commitment to our senior team, the Scimitars.
Our senior team is the place where many of our talented juniors will be given the opportunity to prove themselves at a senior level, as many have done in the past and moved onto great things. Support from Tivac will allow us to continue to do this in the coming season and beyond. I'd like to thank Tivac for their support on behalf of all the Tivac Alloys Sheffield Scimitars players and staff."

Richard Matthewman, owner of TIVAC ALLOYS Ltd said “ Being a local lad, im thankful to be in a position that I can help support a local club so close to my heart and help continue the development career path from juniors to seniors in one of the largest Ice Hockey Academies in the UK. Both my sons have played for Sheffield and it was an easy decision for me to continue to support Sheffield IHA. I have been involved in sponsoring other ice hockey clubs and players from the Sheffield Steelers, Sheffield Steeldogs and the Hull Pirates but to see players come through the junior system to play senior hockey is extremely rewarding and one i'm delighted to help and continue to support.”

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