Surbiton Hockey Club is pleased to announce that Edel Grass is to be the main shirt sponsor for Surbiton Ladies starting from the 2018-19 season.

Edel Grass has been the shirt-sleeve sponsor for both Surbiton first teams since 2014 and this latest announcement is the natural progression of what has proved to be a successful relationship over the last four years.

Regarding the announcement, Surbiton Ladies’ Manager, Tony Jones said, “The Surbiton Ladies squad are very pleased that Edel Grass are expanding their support of the team and becoming our main shirt sponsor for the coming season. We are fortunate to play our home games on an Edel Grass water-based pitch that suits our style of play and we look forward to our relationship continuing. The sponsorship support Edel provides is very helpful as we aim to continue our record of domestic success and also challenge strongly in Europe in 2019.”

Edel Grass’s Marketing Manager, Frank Herbrink said, “Edel Grass’s choice to support magnificent clubs both at top and recreational level, goes back a long way. We have always focussed on making hockey available for as many people possible, not only on a professional level. This is also why we developed our best hockey products including Edel ID, which was designed for top hockey, but is achievable for every club.

Wanting to build on previous experience, Herbrink added, “Now, following very positive experiences in the Netherlands and gaining exposure after partnering with leading clubs, it is a logical choice to follow the same strategy in the UK. Also due to the fact that we have experienced a clear growth in the realisation of hockey fields at several great UK clubs this year and the potential in the UK for our hockey fields, we believe it’s time to step up the pace a little.

Explaining why he feels that Edel Grass and Surbiton Ladies are a perfect match, Herbrink concluded, “Therefore the timing couldn’t be better and we are very happy that we were given the opportunity to sponsor Surbiton Ladies. Sponsoring Surbiton as a club by being the main shirts sponsor of their Ladies 1st team perfectly matches our plan to become more visible as the premium hockey field supplier in the UK.
