The Leeds Knights are thrilled to welcome Verity Thomas as our new Partnership Manager. With an impressive track record in the commercial side of sports, Verity brings a wealth of experience to the team.

Verity shared her enthusiasm for her new role:

“I am delighted to be joining the Knights ahead of the new season and I’m really looking forward to getting started!

My role will consist of looking after the sponsors already linked with the Club and forging new partnerships with businesses in Yorkshire and further afield, as well as boosting the profile of the game.

For the last 10 years I have overseen the commercial department at Wakefield Trinity Rugby Club and prior to that, I was at Manchester United Football Club. Having worked in sport for almost 15 years, I’m no stranger to the thrilling rollercoaster ride that working in this industry can be.

The Knights are in a fantastic position going into the 24/25 season, both on and off the ice, thanks to the amazing support they have had from everyone involved.  Compared to other sports in the City, ice hockey is still fairly new but it has massive potential and I’m excited to be a part of it!”

As we prepare for the upcoming 24/25 season, the Leeds Knights are confident that Verity's expertise and passion will play a pivotal role in enhancing our partnerships and promoting ice hockey within the community. We look forward to the exciting opportunities and growth that lie ahead under her guidance.
