HitecVision is the main sponsor of the Ukrainian ice hockey team Ravens located in the Stavanger region. The team plays in the top division in the boys U18 league in Norway.

So far, the Ravens have had a great start to the season and have won most of the matches.

How this team from Kharkiv got here is about the war, a local ice hockey club, and solidarity.

The team was on their way to a tournament in Hungary by bus when the war in Ukraine started. The bus with around twenty boys who were 15 at the time, together with coaches and some parents, decided to drive to Poland to get the boys safe, and stay there until the situation was resolved.

The stay lasted longer than they had intended.

Stavanger Oilers (local ice hockey club) learned about their situation and arranged transportation and accommodation for the team, coaches, and parents to the Stavanger area. The team has since been granted residence in Norway and has been enrolled at a local Norwegian school. They have become part of Forus & Sandnes ice hockey club and have been allowed to train in one of the many ice rinks in the city.
