We are beyond excited to announce that Clutch has been named the Official Online Pre-Owned Car Retailer of the National Hockey League (NHL®) in Canada. Today, Clutch and the NHL announced a multiyear Canadian partnership, marking the first time the brand has been an official sponsor of a major professional sports league.
The new agreement provides Clutch with an array of exclusive marketing rights and designations that will connect the brand with the NHL and its fans through the NHL’s vast marketing, digital, and social media channels. In just a few weeks, fans will see the Clutch brand displayed in camera visible virtual slot in-ice ads during all 2022 Stanley Cup® Playoffs and 2022 Stanley Cup® Final games broadcast on Sportsnet in Canada.
