[TORONTO]—The current 10th ranked curling team in the world led by John Epping announced today that they’ve reached an agreement with OS&B, a leading manufacturer and distributor of plumbing products, on a partnership for the 2018-2019 season
The partnership will see the OS&B logo positioned prominently on the left sleeve of the jersey worn by all Team Epping athletes.
“We’re very excited to announce this partnership with OS&B for the upcoming season,” said John Epping, a three-time Grand Slam of Curling Champion and 18-time winner on the World Curling Tour. “OS&B has been a leader in their industry for over 40 years and it means a lot to us that they’ve selected Team Epping to partner with.”
In addition to the uniform branding, Team Epping will also attend a major trade show as ambassadors of OS&B, provide promotional support through Team Epping social media channels and provide meet & greets with their customers and executive team.
“We are thrilled to partner with Team Epping for what we believe will be a fantastic season for one of the top ranked curling teams in the world,” said Brent Cornelissen, President of OS&B. “OS&B is proud to be an industry leader in our world and we know our support of Team Epping will help them in their goal to be the leader in their world.”
Team Epping added a couple of veteran players over the offseason with 2018 Olympian Brent Laing and four-time World Curling champion Craig Savill set to join skip John Epping and Third Mat Camm. Savill’s return to the rink has been a well-documented and celebrated one after he took a leave of absence to fight Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which he has successfully beaten. He reunites with Laing, with whom he won two Tim Hortons Briers, two world championships and 12 Grand Slams.
During the 2017/2018 season, Team Epping was directly featured on more than 60 hours of live television coverage at major events across the country on Canada’s top sport networks – Rogers Sportsnet and TSN.
