The proposed agreement with the preferred supplier to provide kit for all Scottish Hockey and Scottish Masters Hockey (SMH) national teams has, for unforeseen circumstances arising out of current world events, been terminated.
Both Scottish Hockey and Scottish Masters Hockey are fully aware of the concern that this will generate with the immediacy of major competitions for both organisations (Commonwealth Games and European Championships for Scottish Hockey and World Masters Hockey World Cups for Scottish Masters Hockey).
It is the preferred option for both organisations that a single supplier of national kit be found and initial discussions have already started with a leading international brand to ascertain whether they are in a position to supply both the quality and quantity of garments required.
Scottish Hockey are well aware that SMH are seeking a long-term deal and that this, for reasons of urgency, may result in them having to investigate other options solely for SMH.
Scottish Hockey and Scottish Masters Hockey are committed to continuing to working together for their members.
