We are proud to announce a sponsorship agreement with Hockey New Zealand which sees us confirmed as a sponsor for the 2018 Hockey Men’s World Cup being held in Odisha. We have a history of sponsorship in sports – we are also a major sponsor of the Otago Rugby Union and Southland Rugby – and are thrilled to be able to support men’s hockey in this way.
Ian Francis CEO of Hockey New Zealand says “Having a sponsor onboard with the passion of CCL is a fantastic opportunity for Hockey New Zealand. CCL’s support will assist our players for the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup and help the team perform to a high standard during the competition”.
Andrew Allan, CEO of CCL says “We are very proud to be able to sponsor Hockey New Zealand. As a nationwide company with eight offices around the country, it is great to have a national sporting sponsorship in our portfolio. It’s an awesome team and a sport which is close to the heart of many of our staff and their families. We are very excited to partner with New Zealand Hockey and the men’s Black Sticks and wish them all the best for the World Cup.”
The Vantage Black Sticks Men started their campaign on November 30th at 2:30am when they took on France and came away with a 2-1 win taking them to equal top of their pool. A great start from New Zealand.
