Pelicans is a Finnish ice-hockey team from Lahti, whose roots reach all the way back to the year 1891. This was the year when Viipurin Reipas was founded, and after several name changes, the team settled with “Pelicans” in 1996—a name no doubt familiar to all Finnish ice-hockey fans.
Today, Pelicans is a determined and confident team, who have shown great respect for their homestead by including many local talents in their line-up. The main owner of Pelicans has a strong vision for the group, and they have the unyielding support of the entire city of Lahti behind them. It is a great pleasure for Voima to be standing in the ranks of Pelicans supporters.
The team comments the partnership as follows:
'Voima is an awesome addition to our partner network by creating value and dignity both for Pelicans and for Pelicans’ consumers and partners. Through this partnership, we wish to pass on Voima’s unique idea also to our own customer base.'
