City of Manchester Hockey Club are seeking sponsorship for the upcoming 2023/24 season.

 

City of Manchester Hockey Club was founded in 2002 and has since become a prominent hockey club in the region. Our club’s inception was inspired by the legacy of the 2002 Commonwealth Games, where we were granted access to the Commonwealth pitches for training. We have three Men’s teams and four Ladies teams, with our Men’s 1st team competing in the highly competitive North West Division 2, and our Ladies 1st team playing in the North West Division 3 East. Our Men’s 2s and Ladies 2s have also both achieved promotion in the 2022/23 season, elevating the calibre of our club.

Our home games take place at the renowned Armitage Sports Centre in Fallowfield, Manchester, which provides excellent facilities for our teams and spectators alike. With over 150 dedicated members, we take pride in fostering inclusivity, teamwork, and commitment within our club. These values are deeply ingrained in our club culture and resonate with the community we serve. We are also proud to be partnered with Salford University and have strong links with Manchester Metropolitan University and Manchester University.
