LANGLEY, B.C., January 18, 2024 –  The Vancouver Bandits announced Thursday that British Columbia-based North American yoga and fitness industry leader, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness, has committed to supporting Canadian professional basketball by signing a community and marketing partnership with the Bandits for the 2024 Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) season.

The 2024 season marks Oxygen Yoga & Fitness’ inaugural season of partnership with Bandits Basketball. The Bandits serve as BC’s professional basketball team and are entering their 6th CEBL season, tipping off in May 2024.

The focus of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness’ partnership with British Columbia’s professional basketball team is to contribute to the game day experience at Vancouver’s home venue of Langley Events Centre (LEC) and showcase the Oxygen Yoga & Fitness brand nationally through its acquisition of a premier jersey asset on the back of the shoulders of each Vancouver Bandits’ home, away and alternate jersey. 

This sponsorship position was recently introduced by the CEBL and is new for the 2024 season. With the partnership, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness in tandem with the Bandits become the first CEBL partnership to announce a national brand in this highly visible upper-back placement.

The Oxygen Yoga & Fitness logo will make its “on-jersey” debut this upcoming May when the Vancouver Bandits commence their sixth CEBL season, which will feature games on TSN national telecasts, TSN+ and CEBL+.

“As we embark on this journey with the Vancouver Bandits, I’m thrilled to announce Oxygen Yoga & Fitness’ partnership. Supporting our local athletes and working with the CEBL fills my heart with pride. Together, we’re not just sponsors; we’re a community fostering dreams. Let’s soar to new heights, united in our commitment to excellence,” said CEO & Franchisor of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness, Jen Hamilton.

Oxygen Yoga & Fitness, a British Columbia-founded company, started with a single yoga studio in 2008 and has now grown to over 80 locations across North America. Passionate about health, fitness and mental health, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness is Canada’s original FAR infrared hot studio. 

“The Vancouver Bandits are grateful to partner with Jen Hamilton and Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. Oxygen Yoga & Fitness is an industry leader when it comes to combining healthy active living and mental health. Jen is a role model in the entrepreneurial space and we are proud to formalize a partnership that will showcase the Oxygen Yoga & Fitness brand whenever we play at home and on the road across Canada and on TSN national TV,” said Bandits team president Dylan Kular.
