67's and Gongshow Gear AlignSep 27, 2012 - 09:14 EDT
The Ottawa 67’s today announced that Gongshow Gear Inc. is the team’s official supplier of “Lifestyle Hockey” apparel. The agreement will provide 67’s players with Gongshow apparel in exchange for promotional considerations at the team’s home games.
“Gongshow Gear is a brand highly favored by our players and others,” said 67’s Owner and Governor, Jeff Hunt. “We’re happy to have them on-board as an official supplier.”
"Gongshow could not be more excited to be the official Lifestyle Hockey apparel of the Ottawa 67's," said Gongshow Gear Inc. President Ger McNamee. "Being a local Ottawa company ourselves, it’s great to support another business in our community and, of course, 67’s players. We look forward to a great season!"
Gongshow was founded in 2002 by three teammates in the Central Junior "A" Hockey League after identifying the need for a hockey apparel brand that would accurately represent the exciting and exclusive lifestyle that hockey players live. Gongshow was the first Lifestyle Hockey Apparel brand in the world to hit the market in 2002, and this game-changing company has since grown into the largest hockey lifestyle clothing brand in the world - selling in over 500 retail locations, in 15 countries internationally, and has hailed comparisons to such pioneering lifestyle brands as Billabong (Surfing Lifestyle), and Burton (Snowboarding Lifestyle). Gongshow is dedicated to a core set of philosophies and strengths: design superiority, highest level of material quality and workmanship, edgy and trend setting hockey expression, a focus on consumer to brand connection, and strong partnerships with retailers and suppliers.
