INEOS lined up as first official hygiene partner to Great Britain and England Hockey

Hygiene solutions provider INEOS Hygienics has become Official Hygiene Partner to Great Britain and England Hockey, keeping the men and women’s teams in safe hands with its new range of professional sport sanitiser sprays – designed by sportspeople, for sport.

As a reliable, trusted name in high purity alcohol-based sanitiser products, INEOS Hygienics’ Sport range has been co-developed with elite sports teams to help prevent the spread of infection and will be provided to Great Britain and England Hockey’s international teams, with product also available for the 800+ clubs across England to purchase at a discounted rate.

Helping to ensure that the teams train, travel and compete safely and with confidence, INEOS’ professional range of dedicated Sport sanitisers will be supplied to Great Britain and England Hockey and for their domestic and international events, including the FIH Hockey Pro League, Men’s & Women’s World Cups plus the Commonwealth Games which are being hosted on home soil.

The first of its kind range uses a specialist fast drying, non-slip formula that leaves hands and equipment protected and ready to play whilst killing 99.9 per cent of bacteria and viruses.

Fast and easy, INEOS Sport sanitiser enables players to handle equipment with clean, protected hands that are ready for action. The team will be kitted with the full range, including the Sport Equipment Sanitiser Spray which comes in 400ml and 100ml and is ideal for cleaning hockey sticks, balls, bibs, and other shared equipment. Alongside the portable 50ml Sport Hand Sanitiser Spray, which can be used directly on hands and clips on to kit bags for easy application.

Great Britain and England Hockey joins a list of elite sports teams who share this partnership, with INEOS working to keep Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, All Blacks Rugby, and INEOS Grenadiers Cycling Team all at the top of their game.

George Ratcliffe, Chief Operating Officer of INEOS Hygienics said:“INEOS Hygienics supports some of the world’s most successful sports teams across different disciplines, including the likes of football, Formula One, cycling, sailing and now proudly hockey.

“We know how important it is for our athletes to maintain a consistent and efficient hygiene programme so that they can train and perform at the highest level.

“With a big season ahead, we’re proud to provide products that help prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria, allowing the athletes to focus on the task in hand and perform at the top of their game.”

Nick Pink, CEO of Great Britain and England Hockey said: “We are delighted to be partnering with a major hygiene brand in INEOS Hygienics who, like GB and England Hockey, is committed to developing world-leading practices.

“We welcome INEOS Hygienics to the growing number of partners in the sport and recognise the importance of hygiene measures to protect all participants and supporters.

“This new partnership reinforces the commitments we and the hockey community have made in maintaining the highest standards throughout the recent pandemic and our continued efforts in recovery.”

INEOS Hygienics will also provide Great Britain and England Hockey with its touchless Sanitiser Dispensers, which will be used at England Hockey’s base at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre, as well as home international match venues.

Designed by Toby Ecuyer, Head Designer of the INEOS Grenadier 4×4, the INEOS Sanitiser Dispenser is a feat of British design and Swiss engineering. The meticulously crafted dispenser delivers hospital grade sanitiser onto hands, killing 99.9 per cent of bacteria and viruses – without any contact. The touchless dispensers will be positioned in multiple locations, from player changing rooms to hospitality areas.
