It is an exciting time for England Hockey competitions as the outcome of recent reviews will see a redeveloped adult and junior competitions programme, designed to meet the needs of players and organizers.

This is both in terms of depth, with tiered competitions to cater for increased numbers of young players of different abilities, and enhanced adult competitions activity offering different ways to play the game and at different times of the year; further details of which will be announced in March.

The Competition Management System will consolidate and drive all elements and stages of the England Hockey competition programme including entries, registration, management, delivery and results. It will also be embedded within our social media platforms to provide an engaging experience for our players, officials, competition deliverers and fans. The system will be introduced for the 2017-18 season.

Commenting on the news, Stephen Barlow, Competitions Manager at England Hockey said

“We are very pleased to be working with SportLoMo. We have analysed the future requirements for our Competition Management System in detail and followed a robust process to ensure that potential providers could understand what will meet our needs. We were impressed with the enthusiasm and expertise of SportLoMo and the competition management systems they already have in place. We look forwards to working with them”

England Hockey has partnered with Fixtures Live to deliver its competitions programme since 2001 and this decision brings to an end 16 years of working together on this. England Hockey wishes to place on record its thanks to David Lloyd Williams and his colleagues at Fixtures Live for their support during this time.
