England Hockey, the national governing body of field hockey in England, have formed a new partnership with sports tour operator Gullivers Sports Travel.
As the official travel supplier of England Hockey, Gullivers will cover the global travel requirements for the body’s various teams and offer supporter travel packages for several upcoming events, including August’s European Hockey Championships in Belgium and all international tours.
The company will also handle the logistics for all major hockey events in England, including the Investec London Cup, the 2015 European Championships, the Investec World League and future international tournaments.
Noel Magnay, the managing director of Gullivers Sports Travel, said: “These new travel packages will be a great way for hockey fans to get closer to the action this summer, where we’ll be providing fantastic match seats and also exclusive access to the players, and the coaching sessions. There’ll be lots of other goodies too, such as signed shirts, fabulous dinners, all making for a truly unbeatable tour, for an unbeatable price!”
“This is the first time hockey fans will be able to book their travel and tickets together as a package, and our new online portal makes booking very easy. Plus, we’ve also included guaranteed exclusive perks to make sure fans have a fantastic experience!”
Jonathan Cockcroft, the commercial and membership director at England Hockey, added: “The popularity of hockey is increasing all the time and with participation having grown by 30,000 people over the past year and major events drawing bigger crowds and more television coverage it’s a great time for us to offer supporters new ways of following the England teams.
“With over 40 years’ know-how in delivering exceptional sporting experiences, Gullivers Sports Travel are ideally placed to encourage new fans to the sport and to ensure a seamless travel service for our existing supporters and participants. We’re very much looking forward to working together.”
