WHL Marketing / Business Award WINNER Moose Jaw Warriors
The Moose Jaw Warriors, under the management of Director of Business Operations Corey Nyhagen, made great strides in increasing their financial and overall presentation of Warriors Hockey. During the 2011-12 WHL season, the Warriors increased overall club revenues by over $1 Million dollars. Having moved into a new, state-of-the-art facility, Mosaic Place, the Warriors increased their sponsorship revenue by 70%, and increased season ticket revenue by nearly 40%. Thanks to their new building and their increased presence in and support from the Moose Jaw community, the Warriors saw their average attendance increase by the second-largest margin of any WHL team from the previous season. The Warriors also managed successful events such as the Western Canada Under-16 Challenge Cup and the Subway Super Series throughout the 2011-12 season.
