Purolator delivers for Toronto sports fans

Purolator extends partnership with MLSE for another five years

Providing our customers and employees with unique experiences is something Purolator prides itself on. For the past six years, Purolator has partnered with Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) and has been the official courier of its affiliated sports teams including the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors and Toronto FC.

Purolator is proud to announce it has extended its agreement with MLSE for another five years, building on a successful six year relationship. As part of the partnership, Purolator will maintain exclusivity in the Courier and Freight categories and continue to deliver the season tickets for each team – the Leafs, Raptors and TFC.

“Our relationship with MLSE gives Purolator the unique ability to partner with iconic professional sports teams that symbolize the pride and passion of our Canadian customers” said Ramsey Mansour, Vice President, Marketing.

A key highlight of the agreement and for the first time in Toronto Maple Leafs’ history, the Purolator logo will appear on the front chest of the Maple Leafs practice jersey. In addition, Leafs, Raptors and Toronto FC players will accompany our couriers to deliver season tickets to pre-selected customers each year.
