The Stena Line Belfast Giants are excited to announce that Cool FM/Downtown Radio will become the new radio partner for the organisation. Steve Thornton launched the partnership on Monday morning on the Cool FM Breakfast Show with Paulo Ross and Rebecca McKinney and gave listeners an insight into what they can expect from the partnership this season.
“We are very excited to have Cool FM & Downtown Radio on board for what will be a extra special season for the Giants,” said Steve Thornton, Head of Hockey Operations. “Especially with our fans being treated to the refurbishment of The SSE Arena, Belfast starting from our opening night on Saturday 12th September against the Manchester Storm.”
“The 2015/16 season team sees the return of fan favourites as well as plenty of fresh faces for the fans – Cool FM & Downtown Radio will have unlimited access to the team throughout the season, including features on their shows as well as online channels!”
The partnership will see the organisation and Cool FM as well as Downtown Radio teaming up to give fans the full Giants Experience including previews and promotions for upcoming games, competitions, live updates from home and away games as well as behind-the-scenes features with the 2015/16 roster, led by new Head Coach Derrick Walser, and much more.
Commenting on the partnership Mark Mahaffy, Managing Director, Downtown Radio/Cool FM said:
“There is real synergy between the Stena Line Belfast Giants and the Downtown Radio/Cool FM brand, both are top of their game and have built up a long legacy of success over the past number of years. The Giants have hugely ingrained themselves as being part of the local community and successfully showcase Northern Ireland’s rich culture and heritage on a local and international stage. They both share the attraction for a family atmosphere and top class entertainment.”
