The 1908 Club

The 1908 Club

There have long been relationships between business and sport but rarely has there been an opportunity like this, for businesses and individuals to become exclusively associated with world class athletes in an Olympic sport.

At a time when English hockey is riding high on the international stage and attracting growing interest from the public and media alike, England Hockey is offering an unparalleled opportunity to share in the teams’ success while expanding your business horizons and helping to develop the hockey players of the future.

Our first Olympic medal in 20 years when our women won Bronze at London 2012 has followed a period of notable success where both teams have risen up the world rankings, through a series of podium finishes which have included the men becoming European Champions for the very first time and the women runners-up at the Champions Trophy in 2012.

Our Olympians represent the pinnacle of a sport that is played by more than 100,000 people across the country every week and by thousands more children in schools. Hockey’s AB audience with a near 50:50 gender split makes it an exciting sport for businesses to align themselves.
