Maxifuel, the endurance nutrition brand from Maxinutrition, the UK and Europe’s leading performance nutrition company, has signed a three-year agreement to become the new title sponsor for hockey’s leading indoor competition, the Super Sixes Championships and Super Sixes Finals, which will be held at Wembley Arena on Sunday 29 January 2012.

The renamed Maxifuel Super Sixes Finals will see the top men's and women's teams from the Maxifuel Super Sixes Championships compete at an end-of-season showpiece event featuring both the men’s and women’s finals, plus the men’s semi finals.

Five thousand spectators watched Bowdon Hightown's women and East Grinstead's men lift the inaugural super sixes trophies earlier this year.


Mark Morgan, Senior Sponsorship Manager at Maxifuel, is delighted to announce this landmark sponsorship agreement for the brand and the event. He said: “This deal represents a significant investment into hockey for Maxifuel.

 “We see this as an exciting opportunity to help England Hockey to grow the sport from grass roots to the international game, and to ultimately generate future success for the national team."


Jonathan Cockcroft, Commercial and Membership Director at England Hockey said: “Maxifuel has been helping the England and Great Britain hockey teams fulfil their potential on the pitch and I’m delighted that we are expanding our partnership to help take the Super Sixes Championships to a new level. 

“The Maxifuel brand is synonymous with activity, high performance and energy, all of which are in abundance at the pinnacle of hockey's indoor game.  We enjoyed a terrific Super Sixes Finals at Wembley Arena this year and with Maxifuel’s backing we will raise the bar further to create an even more exciting spectator experience in 2012, and beyond.”
