Sponsorship & Partnership Opportunities

The CWHL is the most elite women’s hockey league in the world, where the best female hockey players in North America and the world compete. The CWHL consists of seven teams, Markham, Toronto, Boston, Montreal, Calgary, and one China team; KRS Vanke Rays.

The Markham Thunder have just relocated from Brampton in 2017. The Brampton Thunder have been the model franchise for women’s hockey in North America since its inaugural season in 1998-99. The Thunder have always been a proud part of the community, and the players are proud to be role models for aspiring athletes in the GTA and throughout Canada.

Even though the CWHL is home to several Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and World Champions, what makes the league unique is that the majority of the CWHL is made up of educated and self-motivated females who have a passion for the sport and want to continue playing the sport that they love after their collegiate or university hockey careers, while also pursuing their careers in their chosen professions.

The CWHL is a semi-professional league.  Our players, who train full-time and commit themselves fully to the Markham Thunder, are not paid for their efforts. They play purely for the love of the game.  With your help, we can provide them with a professional environment in which to play the game that they love and continue to inspire young athletes throughout Markham and Canada to pursue their dreams.

We have many different opportunities for sponsorship and partnership. We will tailor each package to better serve your businesses wants and needs.

Once you come on as a sponsor for the Markham Thunder, you become a part of the team! Every one of you is helping build our team and our league to be better each and every year. You are a vital part to the success of our club.
