Campbell Thomson announced as Scotland men’s back of shirt sponsor
The Scotland men’s hockey squad has received a boost as Scottish Hockey announces Campbell Thomson as the team’s new back of shirt sponsor. The independent financial advice firm has come on board in a three-year contract to support Scotland men in the coming years.
The announcement comes just as Scotland men travel to Antwerp to compete in the EuroHockey Championships where they will take on the Netherlands; Germany and Ireland in Pool B of the tournament.
Germany will be Scotland’s first opponents when they meet on 17 August at 12:30 UK time. On the following day Scotland play Ireland at 14:45 before taking on the Netherlands at 17:00 on 20 August. Crossover matches start from 22 August. All matches will be shown live on the BBC and EuroHockey TV.
The Blue Sticks have had an exceptional last few years where they have won EuroHockey Championship II; clocked up their highest ever finish at a Commonwealth Games; won Team of the Year at the Sunday Post Sports Awards; and have finished higher than ranking four times in three years.
The Campbell Thomson logo will be placed on the back of the men’s shirt for the first time at the EuroHockey Championships.
