Hockey Sponsorships

Investec Hockey Academy and St Mary’s Investec Hockey Festival

 

Investec facilitates the development and growth of female hockey talent. We do this through a partnership with strategically selected sponsorships, academies and initiatives.

Our women’s hockey sponsorships range from world-class to community level. As well as celebrating the success of teams and individuals at the very top of the game, we support emerging talent and champion the role the sport can play in empowering women in their lives and careers.

Small in stature, big in talent | Meet SA’s rising hockey sensation, Ongeziwe Mali

The Investec Hockey Academy is helping produce enthusiastic, talented women champions in our country, such as Ongeziwe Mali. She was first recognised at the St Mary's Investec Hockey Festival in 2015 with a bursary to attend the Investec Hockey Academy. There, scouts spotted her out of the ordinary talent and she is now the youngest player in the SA Women's Hockey team. She's now also received her first cap against England in the 2018 Commonwealth games.
