Introducing...Wapping Valley

8 months ago By Stuart Burnside

Landmark sponsorship deal will see national stadium renamed for 2017/18 season

We are delighted to tell you that we have concluded a naming rights agreement for the Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre, which will for this upcoming season be known simply as "Wapping Valley".

Signage round the centre will be changed later today. The naming rights deal also includes all communications referring to the centre. Therefore England Hockey competitions will be known as #RoadToWappingValley or simply #RoadToWapping and East London HC will refer to their first teams as having the opportunity of playing at Wapping.

We ask all members to embrace this new naming convention, starting today.

Happy to take further questions at the AGM.

The naming rights deal will involve Wapping HC making a long term investment in the future of our national stadium. We are delighted to confirm that this will not affect subs or match fee levels, having been raised solely through parking fines.
