The deal will see the company's logo feature prominently on the team's new home and away jerseys, as well as appearing on tracksuits, training gear and across the Lions' physical and online media outlets.
There will also be numerous opportunities for the two organisations to work together on other partnership projects, including fund raising activities and attending cross-promotional events.

Speaking to Lions Radio this week, Solutions For Accounting Managing Director Iain Barker was clearly excited to secure the partnership and is looking forward to see how the team progresses, saying,
"We've been involved with ice hockey for years and felt the Nottingham Lions was a club that looked interesting for us to be involved with and felt it was a worthy cause to be sponsoring."
"I hope it's generating funding to help the Lions promote and grow the club and it's a partnership for us to be actively involved in grassroots ice hockey - we can't wait for the first game of the season!"
Lions General Manager Danny Harrison headed down to Solutions For Accounting's Gregory Boulevard offices this week to sign and seal the deal and stressed how important this new partnership is for the team, saying,
"This is a massive and very welcome boost for the Lions and we can't thank Solutions For Accounting enough for their vital support, they are a growing and forward-thinking business, plus they know their hockey too!"
"As an amateur team run entirely volunteers, playing in a league against numerous semi-professional rivals, every penny is vital to the running of the team and to continue developing the younger players from within the club’s junior system."
"Also, we can now look forward to wearing brand new jerseys and tracksuits come September, after sticking with the same ones for the last three seasons."
Danny Harrison and Iain Barker shale hands on the deal.
