Deloitte partners with the Royal Belgian Hockey Association

Three-year partnership marks next step in Deloitte’s commitment to hockey

After years of supporting multiple hockey initiatives, the partnership with the Royal Belgian Hockey Association is a natural next step. The sport of hockey values respect, fair play, tolerance, inclusion and team spirit, which are also at the core of our DNA.

Sports and hockey in particular are strongly embedded in the culture of Deloitte Belgium. Not only do we believe that sports play an important role in the physical and mental wellbeing of our people, but we have a large community of hockey players and fans within our organisation, among which two professional players.
 

A natural fit

It’s far from a coincidence that we support Belgian hockey. With many values in common, the sport is a clear match with our organisation, bringing people together. 

Hockey is also one of the rare sports that is gender diverse and there is an equal number of male and female players in Belgium. We foster an inclusive culture and embrace diversity in all forms, and we are committed to empowering all people to grow and achieve, accelerating diversity in leadership, and building balance for better.  
 

Joining forces for the European Championship

We strongly believe in the winning spirit of the Belgian hockey teams and are excited to contribute to their success. We wish the Red Panthers and Red Lions the best of luck at the EuroHockey Championship 2021! 

As from 1 June, we are the proud partner of the Royal Belgian Hockey Association.

The three-year partnership includes the following competitions:

  • Top Hockey League
  • Belgian Premier League

We are very happy to start this three-year partnership with the Royal Belgian Hockey Federation. Deloitte has long taken the lead in supporting sports. We strongly believe that sports play an important role in the physical and mental wellbeing of our employees and team cohesion. We have many values in common with hockey. Hockey values respect, fair play, tolerance, inclusion and team spirit, which are also at the core of our DNA.

We are proud to sponsor hockey in Belgium. We not only believe in and support the Red Lions and Red Panthers, we also decided to go beyond the national teams and support the national competition and the upcoming talent. Supporting hockey is a natural choice for us, as we have a large community of players and fans amongst our people. We already support many hockey clubs through our people and with the Deloitte Hockey School we foster young talent.
