ABN AMRO enabler of world-class hockey

ABN AMRO has always been hockey-minded. We are currently the main sponsor of five top-league clubs: Amsterdam, Bloemendaal, Oranje Zwart, Rotterdam and HGC. Not to mention the 55 other hockey clubs in the Netherlands that we give financial support to. Local clubs, where many of our clients are active as volunteers. With our help, they can achieve their sporting ambitions  And we foster new talent. As a sponsor of various events and organisations, we contribute to the development of hockey in the Netherlands.

Support from our ambassadors

Five current and former international hockey players help us sponsor various hockey activities: Kim Lammers, Billy Bakker, Jeroen Hertzberger, Glenn Schuurman and Jelle Galema. They often give clinics and presentations aimed at helping talented hockey players reach their full potential.

ABN AMRO Hockey Academy

Like the Hockey Academy, ABN AMRO believes young talents need good coaching and must continue playing for their own clubs as long as possible. Around the country, clubs connected to the Academy organise annual open training sessions that young players can sign up for. This gives them the opportunity to show their skills and be selected for clinics given by national and international top players. By supporting the Hockey Academy, we are laying the foundations for world-class hockey.

Euro Hockey League

As true field hockey enthusiasts, we are the hospitality partner for the Euro Hockey League. Since 2007, this tournament has been the leading platform for field hockey clubs in Europe. Every season twenty-four top clubs from twelve countries compete in three rounds for the number one position in our continent. Whenever the rounds are held in the Netherlands, our customers are more than welcome to attend.

We organise an annual tournament for the men’s First Division. The ABN AMRO Cup (Dutch) is generally viewed as the dress rehearsal for the official hockey season, where First Division teams can prove their mettle. Bringing the cream of the country’s hockey talent together, the ABN AMRO Cup is a high-profile competition. This year’s finals will be hosted by Hockey Club Rotterdam.

Special needs hockey

We aim to make hockey accessible to as many players as possible, including those who cannot keep up in a regular team. This is why we sponsor hockey for people with physical and mental disabilities, for example by providing free tracksuits or new ‘Teun de Nooijer’ hockey sticks. Children with disabilities, like other children, need to participate in sports for their physical and social development. We work with the Flocamp Foundation (Dutch), as a 1% FairShare partner of the Fund for Special Needs Sports, to help organise hockey camps, clinics and courses for players with disabilities from all over the Netherlands. With the same organisations, we organise the annual Friends of Special Needs Hockey Day during the Euro Hockey League finals.
