Staff at Hockey Club Lugano will receive a formal suit designed by the luxury designer, while players will be provided with a jogging suit and a complete outfit from Plein Sport.

“As a Swiss brand headquartered in Lugano, a partnership with the storied local hockey club is a natural fit on many levels. Not only will it boost brand recognition and awareness in the home market, but having the privilege to dress these modern-day warriors as they set off to battle is something I am both passionate about and proud to be associated with,” said Philipp Plein.

Meanwhile, HCL sales manager Marco Mantegazza said: “We are proud to welcome an important brand like Philipp Plein to our family of sponsors. Collaborating with international partners based in our territory is stimulating and a strong source of inspiration.”
