Hero seals title sponsorship of Hockey World League final

Motorcycle manufacturer Hero has been unveiled as the title sponsor of the 2015 Hockey World Cup League final in Raipur, India.

The event, which is operated by the International Hockey Federation (FIH), will take place between November 27 and December 6.

The India-based company has a long relationship with hockey and the FIH, having been the title sponsor of the 2010 Hockey World Cup, 2013 Junior World Cup and 2014 men’s Hockey World League final.

FIH president Leandro Negre said: “Given the ongoing commitment that Hero has made to hockey both in India and around the world over the years, it is a natural fit for them to partner with FIH for the 2015 men’s Hero Hockey World Hockey League Final being held in India.”
