About Rick Parry is selling himself to play Ice Hockey for New Zealand

Project 2017-01-13 17:03:00 +1300

My name is Rick Parry and I'm the starting goaltender for the New Zealand Ice Hockey team, 'The Ice Blacks'. I have represented New Zealand at nine International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship events, winning one gold and three silver medals, currently holding numerous New Zealand IIHF records including; Most capped goaltender, most wins by any NZ goaltender and I'm the only New Zealand-born Ice Hockey goaltender to ever play professionally.

Unfortunately, Ice Hockey in New Zealand receives no government funding and the only sponsorship comes privately. With the 2017 tour expected to cost each team member at least $3,200 before equipment costs. To fund my tour, I've turned to selling my body...well sort of.

Unfortunatly World Championship tournament rules dictate that we are not allowed individual sponsors for the event, so the bulk of what I'm offering is sponsorhip exposure on my Ice Hockey equipment for the duration of the 2017 New Zealand National league season running from May to September, which will include at least 16 games throughout Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queestown. Including an All-Star game and international test match against Australia later in the year. 

This year we are hosting the Division Two world championships in Auckland and at this point of my career this may be the last opportunity to play in front of a home crowd. We are sending one of the strongest sides in recent times and will have a formidable shot at earning the top hardware.

Please support my pledge if you can, send this to a friend, and be sure to come support the Ice Blacks at the up-coming World Championships in April.

All the information you need regarding the Ice Blacks can be found here.

I play the domestic National league season with the West Auckland Admirals, you can also keep up with our progress here
