MYHockey Additional Sponsorship Information
How often will my ad be displayed?
MYHockey will sell no more than three (3) platinum level sponsorships, six (6) gold level sponsorships and twelve (12) silver level sponsorships. This means that your advertisement will be be displayed on once (or twice) in every visitors six page visit. If less sponsorships are sold at any one time, your advertisement may display more frequently. MYHockey web statistics show that the average MYHockey visitor visits 5-7 pages per visit, making the odds significant that most MYHockey visitors will see your advertisement on each visit.

If I do not have an existing ad, will MYHockey help create one?
Your initial purchase of a sponsorship does include services to create an initial graphic advertisement. Advertisers are encouraged to have their own media or advertising departments/agencies provide graphics. This will not only expedite the process, but ensure that corporate trademarks are used appropriately and that your advertisement properly expresses your company's appropriate message.
Can I change my advertisement during my sponsorship period?
Ad graphics can be changed at any time. In general, MYHockey will work with advertisers to make sure their advertising dollars are spent wisely and effectively. All reasonable requests for improvements will be honored. MYHockey reserves the right to charge a small fee if the requested services will take a significant amount of time to make.
