Canada’s leading coffee chain Tim Hortons have helped spread that most Canadian of sports – ice hockey – to somewhere you might not really expect…


The Kenyan Ice Lions are the only ice hockey team in their country, and play on what is the only ice rink in Central and Eastern Africa. In this video from the brand, titled The Away Game, Tim Hortons paid for the team to fly out to Canada, where they not only met some of the biggest names in the sport, they finally had another team to play against for once.

The players were amazed when they were given their own personalised jerseys, but the most emotional moment came when we saw stars of the NHL Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon join the team in the dressing room before the game, with some of the Kenyan’s visibly brought to tears when meeting their heroes.


With Tim Hortons’ donations to the Kenyan youth hockey league, the hope is that the country will be able to foster an interest in the sport with coming generations, making sure there is always someone to play against.
