The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is proud to announce a new partnership with Nutrien to serve as the official presenting sponsor of the league’s “Central” division ahead of the 2023-2024 SJHL Regular Season.
Beginning this season, Nutrien will be the new title sponsor for the division featuring the Battlefords North Stars, Humboldt Broncos, Kindersley Klippers, and Notre Dame Hounds for the next two years.
Nutrien will also be present across the SJHL this coming season with exclusive game nights in all 12 of the league’s markets.
The partnership between Nutrien and the SJHL represent a natural fit, with Nutrien’s large presence in Saskatchewan, including a corporate office in Saskatoon and extensive potash and retail operations throughout south-central Saskatchewan and the rest of Western Canada.
“At Nutrien, our goal is to attract the best talent to help us achieve our purpose of Feeding the Future. As the largest private sector employer in Saskatchewan, partnering with the SJHL enables us to connect directly with their diverse and energetic fanbase,” says Lori Free, Vice-President, Talent Attraction & Organizational Development with Nutrien. “Nutrien’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion nurtures the best ideas and helps us attract employees who will thrive in our culture. We strive to empower all employees with the opportunities and support needed to reach their highest potential.”
“It’s an honor for the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League to partner with an entity so aligned with our prairie roots such as Nutrien,” stated SJHL Director of Marketing and Partnerships Jacob Faith. “We look forward to inviting Nutrien, their employees, and their customers to SJHL games across the league and we can’t wait for the battle to win the Nutrien Division to begin on September 22.”
