UBS, the world's largest wealth manager, will be the presenting sponsor of "The Last Game." In addition to Richter, "The Last Game" will feature other NHL legends including Slava Fetisov, Chris Ferraro, Peter Ferraro, and Rangers hero Stéphane Matteau, among others. Richter, the three-time Olympian and Hall of Famer, was recently been named as Ambassador for "Rivalry on Ice". Since retiring from professional hockey in 2003, Richter graduated from Yale and has made a substantial impact in the renewable energy industry, including co-founding Environmental Capital Partners and serving as the president as Brightcore Energy.
"As a global leader in sustainability, UBS is proud to be supporting an event that is designed to help raise awareness around the impact of climate change," said Bill Carroll, Eastern Division Director at UBS Global Wealth Management, Americas.
Turkish Airlines, a returning sponsor to the third iteration of the series, will offer two lucky fans the chance to win a trip to the destination of their choosing if they can score an open-net shot from the blue line. Turkish Airlines will also engage fans and alumni with a special pre-game hospitality event, and will have prominent branding on-site.
"Turkish Airlines is one of the best and most recognized airlines in the world, and we're thrilled to align ourselves with two of the best and most recognizable universities in the world," said Alp Ozaman, Regional Marketing Manager, New York at Turkish Airlines. "We look forward to take part for a third year in a row, and look forward to the great match."
Rivalry on Ice is owned and produced by Leverage Agency, a NYC-based sports and entertainment agency.
"When it comes to the history and heritage of college sports in America, it all begins with Harvard and Yale," said Ben Sturner, founder and CEO of Leverage Agency, who is the event producer and promoter for the event.
