Funding Partners

England Hockey receives funding from a number of sources, public and commercial. Its biggest funding partners are Sport England, UK Sport and the National Lottery.

Both Sport England and UK Sport help to distribute National Lottery funding into hockey and other sports. The money from the National Lottery comes directly from people playing National Lottery games such as Lotto.

The England Hockey is also very lucky to have the support of The National Hockey Foundation, which has supported grassroots hockey initiatives and events across the country.  Thanks to the National Hockey Foundation, the England Hockey has been able to create Quicksticks and run the National Youth Hockey Festival among many other initiatives.
