European Hockey signs four-year deal with AzPetrol
The European Hockey Federation has renewed its partnership with agreement with AzPetrol for a further four years.
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
