On the eve of Hemel Storm competing for their second National Trophy of the season this weekend, it can be announced today that Vanarama have agreed to continue their sponsorship of Hemel Storm for the 2018/2019 season.
Vanarama, the Hemel based and leading vehicle leasing organisation, have been the principle sponsor of Hemel Storm since the beginning of the 2017 season. During this period the two organisations have worked closely to enhance Storm’s community focused basketball programme.
Commenting on the new agreement Storm Chairman Tony Humphrey said “As our team and hundreds of our fans head to Manchester this weekend for the Play-off final, we can all share and appreciate this fantastic news. In the past two seasons Vanarama have been with us every step of the way as we have brought basketball success and family wide enjoyment to Hemel Hempstead.
In a very short time the impact of our partnership on the wider community is evident in sell-out crowds, greater basketball participation and the unforgettable moment this season of becoming National Cup Champions. On behalf of the club and wider community we all thank Vanarama for their continued support”.
Steve Mark Head of Marketing and Sponsorship at Vanarama added "We are delighted to support the local community through our continued sponsorship of Hemel Storm and this extension will build on the progress we have made together. It’s been great fun to work with Hemel Storm and to get to know their fans and to see the joy that basketball brings to our town. We wish the team every success in the play-off final this Sunday and we can now begin to plan for further progress and success next season".
