Blaze delight at Genting Casino return

The Coventry Blaze are delighted to confirm the renewal of the partnership with our major sponsor Genting Casino. Genting became the club's major sponsor back in 2012, when they opened the brand new venue at the Skydome Arena. By committing to the club for a further season, means they are about to begin their FIFTH season as the club's title sponsor.

The casino, which is situated within the Skydome, opened its doors in November 2012 and has subsequently welcomed Blaze fans and players into the venue. The casino not only has a contemporary bar, but also allows guests to play Roulette, blackjack, poker, slot machines and electronic roulette as well as having a competitive poker table in its dedicated card room. Anyone 18 or over can enjoy the club's extensive cocktail menu at night or relax and enjoy the fantastic food during the day. The facilities are popular with the Blaze players, management and fans. With the new season fast approaching, Genting Casino are looking forward to staging more events for the Blaze community.

Blaze Commercial Manager Ashley Tait said, "We're obviously thrilled to renew our partnership with Genting Casino for a 5th year. The support we have received from them is invaluable and, probably most importantly, being able to have the continuity and support for the last four seasons and now with the commitment to a fifth has been so important to the club's security giving us the ability to focus and really grow the team and the business. Genting's involvement is integral to the club moving forward and to its continued success both on and off the ice!"

Genting General Manager Tracey Gough (pictured above) commented, "We are extremely pleased to be teaming up with the Blaze for a fifth season. When we first became sponsors we had no idea how it would pan out. But the support we receive from the management, players and fans far surpassed our initial expectations. So much so that it has led to us returning for a fifth season as title sponsors. We are also delighted to announce that we will be able to give Blaze season ticket holders their fantastic 25% discount card again this season. We love having the fans in after the games, and this discount card is our way of giving back to the regular Blaze fans."

The Blaze are very grateful to Genting Casino for their consistent and much appreciated support and we look forward to working with them again for the 2016/17 season.
