VIJHL and FASTHockey partner to broadcast 2013-14 season

Press Release

Vancouver Island, BC (July 29, 2013) – The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League has announced they will be working with FASThockey to broadcast all games. 8 out of the 9 teams will be participating this coming season with the 9th team joining for next season.  This partnership brings a new level of commitment to both the fans and team sponsors. Having FASThockey, that is the largest destination for amateur ice hockey videos, will allow access for fans anywhere to watch any game. This means games can be played back, re-watched, and additional information on players will be available. Broadcasting each game in video mode is also an advantage for our players. Their development in junior hockey can showcase their skills for scouts who are looking to take them to the next level in their hockey career.

Team sponsors will also benefit by this development. As well as using print media, there are numerous opportunities for digital media sponsorship with FASThockey. Some of the new opportunities include pre-game shows, intermission videos, post-game and in-game sponsorship.  Since all these videos are stored on the FASThockey platform and can be accessed time and time again, this has added value to business sponsorship.
