Grays is extremely delighted to announce its partnership with Hockey Queensland for the next 4 years.
The partnership will result in Grays Hockey becoming the Official and Exclusive Uniform Partner of Hockey Queensland.
Grays is a leader in the hockey space across the world, with the partnership set to help all players from the grassroots to the elite level in Queensland.
“Grays have a long history of providing quality service and products to the hockey community. Hockey Queensland believe that this will continue into the future, with our members receiving high quality products and excellent customer service throughout our agreement,” Hockey Queensland said.
This year has marked 100-years of hockey in Queensland, with Grays excited to join with such a strong and historic organisation.
“Grays is proud to be working closely with an exceptional organisation in Hockey Queensland,” Grays Hockey Australia and New Zealand Brand Manager Justin Lampard said.
“We believe this partnership is extremely beneficial for all parties, with players and officials of all ages certain to be assisted in their hockey careers through a link with Grays.”
The next decade bodes as a big one for the state with the 2032 Summer Olympics set to ensure the state has plenty of hockey coverage on and off the field at the community and national level.
“Hockey Queensland is thrilled for this incredible opportunity for Queensland, as hockey has been known as ‘Queensland’s sport’,” Hockey Queensland said.
“Everyone has a connection to hockey in Queensland and hosting an Olympic Games in our own backyard, coupled with the success of our Kookaburras and Hockeyroos, will surely see the sport thrive over the next decade.”
As for the next 24 months, there are a number of key events planned for the state with all eyes on the 2032 Olympics.
“In the short term, 2022 will see a return of the Australian National Championships where Queensland expects to continue our domination across all events,” they said.
“Hockey in Queensland has always had strong athletes produced within our regional Associations, and our focus is to continue to develop the strength of regional players over the next 12 months and into the future.
“Despite border closures in 2020 and 2021, Hockey Queensland has continued the strong development of athletes through Queensland-based opportunities, interstate invitational tours, and strong performances at Australian Championships held in 2021.
“We are excited to invest more into our pathway across the state with the release of a new High-Performance plan in 2022. This plan will ensure that Queensland players are represented at the 2032 Olympics.”
