Sahara renews support to hockey

Sahara India Pariwar has renewed its support to Indian hockey by deciding to sponsor the National men's and women's teams at the senior and junior levels for the next five years.

“The sponsorship amount is 170 per cent higher than the amount given earlier by Sahara to hockey,” said a release on Wednesday. Sahara had been the sponsor of the Indian hockey teams since 2003.



“It is our National game and we are proud to be associated with it. We are elated to continue our patronage and support for the game,” said Sahara group chairman Subrata Roy.

Hockey India (HI) general secretary Narinder Batra said HI was happy with the increase in sponsorship money. “Sahara has been very positive and supportive to Indian hockey,” said Batra.
