Hockey NZ extend Lotto partnership
HOCKEY New Zealand has announced Lotto Sportswear will continue as official apparel partner of the Vantage Black Sticks for a further two years.
The partnership that extends back to 2008 will see Lotto provide the playing and off-field kit for both the Men and Women during the busy years ahead, including Hockey World Cups and the Hockey Pro League which starts in January 2019.
Ian Francis, chief executive of Hockey New Zealand, said: “For the next four years we have a confirmed international calendar from January to June with the introduction of the Hockey Pro League. It’s a major step change in the sport around the world.
“We were keen to partner with a brand that wanted to go on the journey with us and help grow hockey at the same time as providing leading sports performance apparel for our teams.
“Lotto Sportswear has done that for us, so it was a pleasure to re-sign with them and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership over the next couple of years.”
