Promutuel Insurance has been named the presenting sponsor of the 54th Vanier Cup, which will be held on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at TELUS-Université Laval Stadium in Québec City.
The announcement was made Tuesday morning at a media conference hosted at PEPS, on the campus of Université Laval, with representatives from U SPORTS, the university’s Athletic Department, the Local Organizing Committee and the event’s new partner in attendance.
Promutuel Insurance is one of the largest property and casualty insurers in Québec. It supports causes, initiatives and events that contribute to the economic and social well-being/health of the territories it has served for more than 165 years.
"It is a great pleasure for Promutuel Insurance to contribute to the hosting of such a great sporting event in Québec City. We will be there, in the heart of the festivities and with the public to attend this great game – the Vanier Cup," said Claude Frenette, General Manager of Promutuel Insurance Portneuf-Champlain.
"We are obviously delighted to be able to count on Promutuel Insurance for the presentation of this major event at Université Laval. On behalf of myself and the organizing committee, I would like to sincerely thank them for this renewed commitment, since they also presented the 2015 Vanier Cup," said Vanier Cup Organizing Committee President Christian Côté.
“It is great to see the community come together around a national event such as the Vanier Cup,” said Graham Brown, President and CEO of U SPORTS. “Quebec City, its inhabitants and economic sectors have always demonstrated excitement and passion for football, beyond the success of the local teams. U SPORTS couldn’t think of a better location to successfully host the greatest game in Canadian university football for the next two editions. We look forward to another national final with an energized atmosphere.”
Sportsnet and TVA Sports are once again the official broadcasters of the U SPORTS football semifinals and final in 2018.
