The team, beat the talented Mooseheads team 3-1 in the final to secure the championship and bring the silverware back to Cardiff.

Vista Technology Support are proud sponsors of the Bear Cubs, and we were very excited to learn of their success.

James Pepper commented:

This is brilliant news for the Bear Cubs and the Sport in Wales. We have a few ex-Ice and Inline hockey players at Vista, myself included. Inline hockey is a sport that teaches you the importance of teamwork and builds fantastic camaraderie between players, Starting at such a young age there is a strong chance that some of these Cubs could be the stars of UK Ice hockey in years to come”. “When we spotted a social media post by the club stating that they were looking for sponsorship we just had to get involved.

Ricky Deacon Cardiff Bear Cubs commented:

I am so proud of the team and how far they have come in such a short time. The club was only established 18 months ago and to become national champions demonstrates the dedication and commitment that the players have put in. I would also like to thank all of those that have supported from volunteers to sponsors. Without that support the club would never be in the position it is and I hope we continue to go from strength to strength as we move forward into the coming season.
