It marks the first association with the prestigious Vanier Cup for ArcelorMittal. Since 2014, the company has also been the title sponsor of the Mitchell Bowl national football semi-final, both CIS basketball championships, as well as the CIS athletes of the week program.
“ArcelorMittal is an outstanding supporter of CIS student-athletes,” said Graham Brown, chief executive officer of CIS. “We are thrilled to add our flagship event, the Vanier Cup, to our existing multi-event partnership.”
Tony Valeri, Vice President Corporate Affairs of ArcelorMittal Dofasco, is equally thrilled about the new partnership.
“We are pleased to add the Vanier Cup, the premier event of the university sport season, to our portfolio of events with CIS. Our partnership with CIS reflects our commitment to excellence and our high regard for organizations and people that strive to be the best. We’re proud to continue to play a role in ensuring that Canada’s student-athletes pursue their competitive sport dreams.”
