50 Reasons to sponsor the Dragons

celebrating 50 years of ice hockey in Deeside

As the Deeside Dragons embark on their journey into the 2024/25 season, we also mark a significant milestone: 50 years since the inception of ice hockey and the Deeside Dragons in 1974. This half-century journey symbolises the enduring passion and dedication of our club and its supporters.

Despite facing challenges, including the loss of our rink during the vaccination period, the Dragons have persevered, now entering their third season back in the NIHL Division One North. Our commitment to excellence and resilience in the face of adversity continues to drive us forward, as we strive to surpass our competitors in the division.

As a club run entirely by volunteers, our progress and success would not have been possible without the unwavering support of our loyal fans and sponsors. As we embark on this historic 50th year, we invite local businesses to join us in this celebration and become a vital part of our journey.
