The World Masters Hockey European Championships has landed Nottingham’s tram network as official travel partner for the week-long event.
More than 50 teams from nine countries are competing in the tournament which takes place between June 30 and July 9 at Nottingham Hockey Centre. NET were title sponsors at last summer’s Masters World Cups in Nottingham.
More than 150 games will take place over five pitches and the University of Nottingham tramstop is just a two minute walk away.
Alison Sweeney, marketing manager at Tramlink, said: “Sport is an important part of Nottingham’s history, and it’s something we’re really passionate about supporting. Following the success of last year’s Masters Hockey World Cups, which we were the title sponsors for, it’s great to welcome hockey back to the city and support the sport for the second year running for the World Masters Hockey European Championships.
“Throughout the upcoming tournament, we’ll be providing convenient and reliable transport for the many visitors attending the ten-day championships. It’s set to be another fantastic event, offering free family days out for sports lovers or budding young hockey players.”
Simon Mason, commercial manager for the the World Masters Hockey European Championships, said: “It’s brilliant to have NET as our official transport partner for another year. Their support is always so welcomed as it means even more sports fans can access the upcoming games quickly and easily each year. We’re really looking forward to what is set to be another brilliant tournament, where we’re expecting to welcome teams and spectators looking for a memorable summer activity, to sit back and enjoy.”
