Johan Wakkie, director of the KNHB (Royal Dutch Hockey Federation): "A huge sporting and cultural festival"

"Let’s celebrate hockey! This slogan really will be fulfilled in every way during the Hockey World Cup. The Hockey World Cup is one big festival. For the hockey players and fans it is a unique international double tournament, with both the men and women playing each day on the pitches of TenCate synthetic turf". According to Johan Wakkie, director of the Royal Dutch Hockey Federation (KNHB), the tournament concept shows that sport brings people and cultures together easily. "It is a unique opportunity to enjoy hockey and, at the same time, to learn more about the countries that are participating. You can do this in the World Cup Village or at the many Side Events".  

According to Wakkie, partners like GreenFields are vital for a large sports event like the Hockey World Cup. He says this in THE CHOICE, the customer magazine of TenCate/GreenFields that will appear after the Hockey World Cup. Wakkie: "We need partners who think along the same lines as the KNHB. In collaboration with the KNHB, TenCate was able to develop a high-quality synthetic turf pitch. We are happy to be able to use this quality synthetic turf. In addition, we are happy to provide them with a fantastic international platform for their business activities".
