The Hockey Paper is proud to announce that we’re teaming up with the NET Masters Hockey World Cup as its media partner for the upcoming competition in Nottingham from Aug 12-21.
Over 1,000 athletes will be visiting the Nottingham Hockey Centre to participate in the over-35 and over-40 age groups of the World Cup.
On our dedicated Masters Hockey page, we will be providing video and match updates as well as colour features as the world’s best age-group hockey players descend upon Nottingham.
Oliver Morgan, of The Hockey Paper, said: “The Masters scene is in meteoric growth. The fact that so many players are travelling to Nottingham from across the world to compete in O35 and O40 age categories is a testament to that and many of these players will be playing well into their 80s which gives hockey a unique advantage over other sports.
“Thanks to the efforts of people like Steve Floyd at England Hockey these tournaments offer Masters players the chance to compete for their countries but also mix socially and create lifelong friendships. At The Hockey Paper we love what Masters hockey is all about and we look forward to bringing the action plus behind-the-scenes stories to our UK and international readership.”
The tournament organisers have said: “The Hockey Paper is the leading UK hockey publication and also has a fantastic presence on the world stage. They will be covering the event with previews, daily wrap-ups, scores and life-style articles. We are delighted to have them as a partner and look forward to working with them.”
The action will also be live-streamed from the Nottingham Hockey Centre, while there will be free admission for spectators.
