Discover Financial Services and the National Hockey League are extending their U.S. partnership that includes Discover maintaining its status as the official credit card of the NHL. In addition, the new agreement — which extends beyond credit cards — names Discover the official bank of the NHL.
The financial services company is also taking on the role of title partner of NBC Sports’ Hockey Day in America, set to take place Feb. 16 with a tripleheader of NHL games on NBC and NBCSN featuring the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers vs. Boston Bruins and Nashville Predators vs. St. Louis Blues.
Discover, an NHL supporter since 2010, will continue as an official partner of the NHL Winter Classic, NHL Stadium Series and NHLAll-Star Weekend, including sponsoring one skill during the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills in St. Louis.
The company will continue to be the presenting sponsor of the “Day With The Cup” video series, where a deserving group or individual who serves as a champion for the hockey community are awarded with a surprise visit with the most iconic trophy in all of sports, the Stanley Cup.
Discover also plans content throughout the year across the NHL's and its own platforms to highlight the impact and growth of hockey across the United States.
On a local level, the company is continuing its engagement with hockey fans of all 31 NHL teams by offering its NHL “Discover it” card. NHL fans can apply for an NHL Discover it card and choose the NHL Shield or their favorite team’s logo at www.Discover.com/NHLCard.
