ABN AMRO supports world-class field hockey

ABN AMRO has always been a great fan of field hockey. We’re currently the main sponsor of seven top-league clubs, we give financial support to 55 local hockey clubs in the Netherlands and we organise a range of hockey events. Our goal? To encourage young talent and to help sports clubs, where many of our clients are active, achieve their sporting ambitions.

Top-league hockey

Amsterdam, HC Bloemendaal, Oranje Zwart, HC Rotterdam, HGC and, since recently, Almere Hockey Club and Klein Zwitserland: these are the seven top-league clubs we are proud to sponsor. By supporting events and organisations within this division, we are giving field hockey in the Netherlands an extra boost.

Local hockey clubs

More than fifty field hockey clubs across the Netherlands can count on our support. Together with our partners Bovelander & Bovelander, BP College and ONFIRE Hockey Support, we organise fun sporting events that improve the level of these clubs. And every season we offer clinics and training courses, helping young, ambitious hockey players to grow.

Support from our ambassadors

Four current and former international hockey players help us sponsor various hockey activities: Jeroen Hertzberger, Billy Bakker, Glenn Schuurman and Jorrit Croon often give clinics and presentations aimed at helping the world’s future hockey stars reach their full potential.

Special needs hockey

We want to make field hockey accessible to as many players as possible, including those who can’t keep up in a regular team. So we sponsor hockey for people with physical and mental disabilities, for example by providing free sports gear or new hockey sticks. Like other young people, children with disabilities need to participate in sports for their physical and social development. As a 1% FairShare┬« partner of the Fund for Special Needs Sports, we help organise hockey camps, clinics and courses for children with disabilities from all over the Netherlands. Under this partnership, we organise the annual Friends of Special Needs Hockey Day during the Euro Hockey League finals.
