BEARD Hockey Team Endorsements
Options must be selected prior to the start of the 2020-21 Regular Season
While Team Endorsements are not mandatory, they are HIGHLY encouraged to help potentially augment your finances. BEARD Hockey endorsements are achievement-based, meaning your club must achieve certain thresholds in order to earn the windfall from each endorsement.
Each club selects one option at each Endorsement Stage before every season (there are three options per Stage). Once clubs have selected their endorsement deals, they will appear on your team's page as well as below so the whole league can see them in one place.
Endorsement deals are for one season only (these are adjusted/renewed in each offseason).
