Stars team up with new Westgate neighbours KuPP
To celebrate the partnership, we are launching a special competition with KuPP for a Stars' fan to win a meal for two at the Nordic inspired restaurant that has just opened on the rooftop of John Lewis.
The partnership was launched this week when Stars players unveiled the club’s special one-off Christmas jersey at KuPP.
Sponsored by Max My Claim, it will be worn by the team for our next home match v Lee Valley on December 17, which is our designated charity game.
Fans are invited to bring teddies for the club to sell to fans to throw on the ice to raise funds to donate to the Children’s Ward at our Christmas visit to the John Radcliffe Hospital.
As part of the partnership, KuPP have given the Stars a supply of its own signature blend filter coffee to keep our fantastic team of volunteers and special guests going at home games for the rest of the season.
To enter the competition to win a fantastic meal for two at KuPP, fans are invited to Tweet photographs of themselves at the home game v Lee Valley, using the hashtag #KuPPStars. Our friends at KuPP will pick the best photo and Tweet us the winner! So make sure you take part to be in with a chance to enjoy a meal for two at one of the Westgate’s brand new places to be.
Stars director, James Schall, said: “We are always looking at ways to partner with businesses in Oxford in a meaningful way, that works for both parties.
“Ice hockey is huge in Scandinavia and KuPP is situated opposite the rink, so it felt a perfect fit.
“KuPP embraced the idea and we are delighted to have formed what we hope will be a fruitful relationship together.”
Fellow Stars director, Greig Box Turnbull, added: “KuPP recognised our community values and ambition as a club and therefore were happy to begin a partnership with us.
“It’s a fantastic restaurant and I’d encourage Stars fans to embrace the partnership and pay them a visit.”
Steve Cox, Managing Director of KuPP, said: “Community is hugely important to us at KuPP so this partnership with the Stars made perfect sense. “It’s great to have neighbours engaging in a sport so popular in the
Nordic region and we can’t wait to share our love of Nordic flavours with the club and their fans.
“We’ll certainly be cheering for the Stars on game day!”
