Bierkeller-Blackpool #A6A0B-01

This years umpire sponsors will be Bierkeller Blackpool, who take pride of place on the umpiring shirts. 2014 is the first year of the company’s involvement with the Festival and BHF are delighted to have them on board! Bierkeller offer a unique drinking and dining experience with a comprehensive beer selection, Bavarian style menu and traditional décor. Entertainment comes in the form of live acts and oompah bands to further enhance your Bierkeller experience! With venues in Blackpool, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, be sure to call in throughout the hockey season for a great time! 

With Bierkeller Blackpool unveiled as official umpire sponsors at Blackpool Hockey Festival, General Manager Darren Boulton commented:

“We’re proud to have taken on the umpire sponsorship at this year’s Blackpool Hockey Festival (which will take place from 17th-21st April). Now in its 63rd year, this not-for-profit event will give male, female and mixed teams the chance to compete at Blackpool Cricket Club and Stanley Park. Given the sporting theme at Bierkeller Blackpool, sponsoring a key sporting event in the local community seemed like a natural fit. We’re looking forward to the event and to toasting the winners with a hard-earned beer or two at the Bierkeller!”
