The Low Price Enterprise Company has braced our hockey national squads with sporting gears yesterday ahead of their departure for Suva, Fiji this weekend.
The Hockey World Round One League will be staged in Suva, Fiji from June 28th to 3rd July and Solomon Islands will be represented by both men and women’s teams.
Low Price Enterprise Manager Henry Kwan said they were no strangers to supporting sports having been the major sponsor of the current hockey school league and had been supporting other sports with sport gears in the past.
“Hockey is one of the new sports lately introduced in the country and we believe that hockey can be taken to new heights with our support,’’ he said.
He stressed there is a potential that the sport can be improved and further developed in the country.
“With those ideas in mind we are more willing to support our national teams with this sporting gears,’’ he said.
Henry also wished our national sides all the best and urged them to make this country proud of their involvement in the competition.
Meanwhile SIHF president Nihal Seneviratne said they were grateful for the contribution of the company as they continuously sought sponsorship to help the team towards FIJI.
“We are very happy and very proud that Low Price has come on board,’’ he added.
