BRAEHEAD Clan have announced a major new sponsorship deal with Wholesale Domestic Bathroom Superstore.

The deal will see the leading online bathroom supplier have their branding on the team jerseys helmets and on the ice. 

There's also good news for Clan fans as Wholesale Domestic are offering discounts for all members of the Purple Army (using discount Code: CLAN10) and also the opportunity to win a brand new free bathroom as part of a new Bathtub Racer interval game.

It's a first time in the world of sports sponsorship for the local family run business who are now national market leaders.

Managing Director Walter Toward said: "We've never been part of a sport partnership before, so we're really excited to see how this develops through the season, and into the future. We've been looking for the right fit for a while now, and when I recognised the family feel at the Clan games, I knew this was the friendly option we were looking for. We're thrilled to be on board with Braehead Clan, it's an extraordinary team and we're all slowly catching the hockey bug! It's an exciting time for Wholesale Domestic."

Clan forward Ryan Potulny, who also played in the NHL for the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers, was at the Wholesale Domestic superstore in Hillington with team mascot Clangus for the announcement: "It's so important to have enthusiastic sponsors who recognise the potential of the team and want to be part of that growth. The fact that they want to be on the jersey, the helmet and the ice shows you how committed they are. I just hope we can get Clangus out of the tub before the games start!".

Clan Brand Ambassador Gerry McLaughlin said: "At the Clan we always look to do things a bit differently or that no other team could do and from the moment we met Walter and Francine they have bought into that. There's not many people would build a bathtub on wheels for you! They've been incredibly generous in their support and after the success of last years 'Beachball Battle' I can wait to see the "Bathtub Racers" take to the ice."
