The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced a new partnership with the Manrique Group to serve as the agency of record for the NAHL. Manrique Group has been brought on board to assist in the NAHL’s efforts to acquire, develop, and implement new league-wide partnership opportunities with companies throughout the United States.
Manrique Group is a full-service sports entertainment and media agency operating out of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“This new partnership with the Manrique Group is another important step in our evolution as an organization to develop additional and enhanced marketing partnerships,” said NAHL Commissioner and President Mark Frankenfeld. “There has never been a better time to be involved with the NAHL and our family of leagues. Our success, reach, and exposure is at an all-time high, so that is a wonderful opportunity for any prospective company or business.”
Over the last 19 years in the industry, Manrique Group has scaled to meet the high power demands of an evolving industry. They have maintained a relentless commitment to delivering unmatched service and truly unique experiences for sports consumers with partner organizations and brands, cornerstones of driving value in the sports marketing space. Manrique Group will work with national and regional partners to support all NAHL member teams throughout the season and as well as through top regional draws like the Showcase Series in Blaine, MN, Top Prospects Tournament in Plymouth, MI and championship tournament, Robertson Cup, in May at the conclusion of the season.
“The NAHL has established themselves as a premier destination for both elite hockey talent and a diverse, avid fan base that continues to rise in popularity,” said Seth Trulen, Director of Business Development at Manrique Group. “This league has a distinguished history in the sport and we are looking to develop partners that connect with their story and share the same commitment to excellence.”
