Congratulations...and thank you to World Cup organisers and sponsors

Well done. Bravo. Great job. Bien fait. There are many ways to say it, but they all mean the same thing. Congratulations, and most sincere thanks, to the KNHB and the World Cup Organising Committee on the remarkably well-run and successful 9th Men's & Women's World Cup.

The Utrecht World Cup has set a standard of excellence, and it remains to be seen whether it can be surpassed. But it would not have been possible without the support of main sponsor, Rabobank International, the City of Utrecht and many others, to whom the FIH would also like to extend its gratitude.

Committed corporate sponsors and supportive governments working co-operatively with sports governing bodies in a spirit of understanding and for their mutual benefit will continue to help improve development and promote excellence in sport. We hope that many more like Raboboank will become part of the world hockey family.

Thank you to FIH sponsors

The FIH wishes to sincerely thank both AstroTurf and PB Publications - publishers of the official FIH magazine World Hockey - for their sponsor support of the 35th FIH Statutory Congress.
