We’re delighted that All In Black will be continuing as our Official Team Partner and title sponsor for the 2021/22 Season. As a Platinum Partner of MKL, they will continue their expanded and deepened relationship with the club which builds on a long term partnership.

All in Black Group is the leading security, systems and training company in Milton Keynes. With over ten years experience operating across the city for clients in a range of sectors, AIB uses experience from Civilian, Police and Military backgrounds, to give their clients the insight and expertise to advise them on the right security requirements for their needs.

AIB are Milton Keynes Lightning Official Team Partner

Milton Keynes Ice Hockey Club CEO Claire Eason-Bassett told us what the role of Official Team Partner means to the club: “Bringing MKL back onto the ice after Covid means we need to have absolutely rock solid foundations and a safe and secure club. All In Black brings a wealth of experience in safety and security, and we couldn’t have a more knowledgeable and skilled partner to be working with as we wake up NIHL National hockey once more in Milton Keynes.”

She went on to say “We aim to offer our fans, volunteers and players the best night out in Buckinghamshire and the local region, and we can only do this by having event staff who are considerate, professional and courteous in the way they interact with people. All in Black bring this approach perfectly, and we are hugely grateful for their continued support and partnership with us this year.”

Aaron Mills, Managing Director of All In Black is delighted to have deepened and further strengthened the partnership with MKL, saying: “We are proud to continue our sponsorship of the All In Black Milton Keynes Lightning Ice Hockey team and to work with them to create a welcoming and secure environment for both home and away teams at the Arena.”

He went on to talk about what it means to him: “MKL is a personal passion for me and my family and I’m committed to ensuring we provide the team and the fans with the highest level of security and support. We love interacting with fans and are committed to keeping them safe and comfortable when supporting the team.”

As well as keeping us all safe with their specialist event services on matchnights, we are also working together to bring their experience into our planning for a safe return to play. We have actively engaged with them on event planning, Covid safety and risk management protocols to meet the needs of today’s world. This will bring the safety and security we need to be confident that we are ready as a club to return to play in line with Government and EIHA requirements, and we’re truly grateful for their support and expertise in this area.

Aaron Mills talked about this depth of cooperation: “Our partnership extends well beyond sponsoring the shirt and providing security services at the arena. AIB is playing our part in ensuring MKL is the pride of Milton Keynes and welcoming new audiences to ice hockey. In addition to traditional sponsorship we are also supporting MKL with sponsoring players. We’re so excited to see what this new season has in store and rest assured we have MKL covered.

Like we said last year, with All In Black, together we’re stronger and safer. That’s your All In Black Milton Keynes Lightning.
