CCHL and Gongshow grow partnership in 2013/2014

Press Release

OTTAWA, ON - The Central Canada Tier 1 Junior Hockey League (CCHL) is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Gongshow Gear as the official supplier of lifestyle hockey apparel to the league. Last year Gongshow Gear sponsored the CCHL "Movember" campaign where over $8,000.00 was raised in support of prostate cancer and mental health. This year a major sponsorship has been expanded to include: Labour Day Super Showcase Player of the Game, Hockey Day in Canada Player of the Game, CCHL Goal of the Month, CCHL Monthly 3-Stars and the overall 3-Star for the season.

 The twelve team league is coming off a great season last year boasting solid parity and former Cornwall Colt Michael Pontarelli earning "Most Outstanding Player" for all of Canada. Kevin Abrams, Commissioner of the CCHL is looking forward to another competitive season and very excited over this partnership, "we're thrilled to have Gongshow Gear as a major partner, it's a natural for us as our players love wearing it and we can both grow our game and apparel together." The CCHL is one of the many Jr. A leagues that Gongshow Gear has aligned with but the CCHL is a special place as both Gongshow Founders Ger McNamee and Craig Kennedy (Kanata Stallions) and Troy Duncan, Sales Manager are all alumni of this very league.

Duncan, a former Ottawa Junior Senator is thrilled to sponsor the very league he played, "the fact that many of us played in the Central makes it that much more special, it's the perfect demographic for Gongshow Gear and it means a lot that we can give back to the league that provided us so many great memories."
