The Strathmore Wheatland Kings recently changed their name to the Agra Risk Wheatland Kings.

Cody Holdaway, General Manager of the newly named hockey team says they signed the largest sponsorship deal in the history of the franchise with Agra Risk Solutions. 

"They've given us a significant capital investment to allow our bus to get down the road throughout the year, lower our player fees."

According to Holdaway, this investment will help keep the team running smoothly come hockey season.

"In return, we've given them naming rights to the team, so league-wide, we are effectively known as the Agra Risk Wheatland Kings."

In a post, the team expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Agra Risk team for their unwavering support of Wheatland Kings Hockey.

"With immense pride, we embrace Agra Risk Solutions as our official naming rights partner, a collaboration that will elevate our presence both on and off the ice. Together, we're poised to embark on an exhilarating chapter filled with unforgettable moments," the post stated. 

The Agra Risk Wheatland Kings are also embarking on renovating their dressing rooms. 

"Some people might not know this, but the Kings have their dressing room inside the Strathmore Family Centre Arena. It used to be the dressing room of the Bisons when they were in town, and the stalls have been there ever since, so the infrastructure is aging."

Holdaway explains that they are looking for businesses or private owners to donate $1000 so that they can renovate their rooms.

"With that $1000, we will purchase a new stall, and you get a brass plaque on the back of the stall with your name on it, thanking you for your donation." 

The Kings have set a two-week time limit for donations so they can complete the renovations before hockey season starts again.

"We're trying to pull this off, but we are only about 50% of the way there. So, we do need more support."
