July 20, 2018

Indian public-sector mining company, Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC), has agreed a deal to sponsor the upcoming Hockey Men’s World Cup.

The tournament will be held at the Kalinga Hockey Stadium in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha, from November 28 to December 16. OMC will serve as the competition’s official partner.

The state government of Odisha signed a major sponsorship deal with Hockey India earlier this year and OMC’s World Cup deal extends the state’s support of the sport on a national and international level.

Hockey India CEO, Elena Norman, commented: “We are delighted to have Odisha Mining Corporation Limited as an Official Partner for the prestigious Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018.

“The biggest gainers from their support is the sport of hockey itself, the hockey fans and more importantly the players who will be taking part in the tournament. I would like to thank the Government of Odisha and the Odisha Mining Corporation Limited for coming forward to support the sport of hockey in the best way possible.”
