Improving the insurances in hockey was seen as a priority by England Hockey and I am really pleased to have Bluefin Sport on board and look forward to working with them. I’d like to thank Howden our outgoing insurance broker for their many years of service to the sport.’
Daniel Thompson, Head of Sport at Bluefin Sport said ‘We are absolutely delighted to work with England Hockey and very much looking forward to delivering this new insurance proposition to members.
