The European Hockey Federation is delighted to announce that it has today signed a new partnership agreement with AzPetrol for a further four years. This partnership will be used to fund development activities of the EHF member countries.
The President of the EHF, Martin Gotheridge, travelled to Baku, Azerbaijan to sign the new contract and said “I cannot over estimate our gratitude to AzPetrol for continuing to support the European Hockey Federation. The Umpire Development Project over the past years would simply not have been possible without the funding from AzPetrol or indeed the dedication of the umpires in the programme and their mentors who have spent endless unpaid hours advising, watching and supporting them. It is a huge testament to the success of the programme that we now see these umpires at EHL, at the Youth Olympics and at the top women’s Club Championship tournaments.”
On the occasion of signing the new contract Mr. Gotheridge said, “This new four year contract gives the EHF the reassurance that we can now turn our attention to other areas of development.
"Partnership is of course a two-way thing and we look forward to working with Mr. Huseynaga Ragimov, Azpetrol, and his team and making sure that their brand is supported at all EuroHockey events.”
