Title sponsor signs on for Hockey World League Final

Auckland-based home building company Sentinel Homes has been named as the title sponsor of this year’s Hockey World League Final, which will take place in the New Zealand city next month.
As part of the agreement signed by the International Hockey Federation (FIH) and Hockey New Zealand, the women’s national team event will officially be known as the Sentinel Homes Hockey World League Final.
The event, which runs from November 17-26 at Auckland’s Harbour Hockey Stadium, will be contested by host New Zealand, along with the Netherlands, USA, Korea, Argentina, England, Germany and China.
Hockey New Zealand chief executive Ian Francis said: “Having a brand like Sentinel Homes on board as naming-rights sponsor is critical for the success of this tournament. Our aim is to create a legacy for hockey throughout New Zealand from this event and be a sports brand that links strongly to families. So we’re thrilled Sentinel Homes are supporting this milestone event for hockey in this country.
“A lot of families and young people will be watching this event, and we hope they are inspired to take up hockey as their sport, or at least to be active. That’s the sort of impact high profile events like this can generate, so we’re very grateful for the support of Sentinel Homes.”
