England Hockey, the national governing body for hockey in England has appointed South Coast agency, MTM to develop and build new digital platforms for both England Hockey and Great Britain Hockey, following a national invitation to tender.
The tender garnered national interest from agencies with five shortlisted and invited to a competitive pitch in October 2019. MTM is uniquely positioned to help England & Great Britain Hockey as the agency has extensive experience in the membership, grass roots sport and professional sport sectors.
Craig Mortimer-Zhika, England and Great Britain Hockey Communications Manager, commented: “We are delighted to be working with MTM to deliver new digital platforms for both England and Great Britain Hockey. How we connect with our players, clubs, parents and the entire hockey audience is extremely important to us, and we’re excited about what MTM can bring to the table.”
MTM is full-service agency and go-to-market campaign specialist with international reach and extensive experience across multiple specialist industries. The agency has a wealth of knowledge and expertise and provides the highest levels of creativity from strategic planning to campaign delivery.
Richard Broughton, Associate Director of MTM, comments: “We are thrilled to have been appointed by England & Great Britain Hockey for this exciting project. We have a lot of experience in creating big digital products for global organisations and delighted to offer our expertise to these two organisations. It was a competitive pitch, but to come out on top is testament to the team’s hard work and impressive ideas.”
He continues: “The audiences and requirements for the two sites are very different but both sites need to be more commercially aware, analytically astute and performance minded. The requirement was for a trusted, well provisioned digital agency to support the internal team, and we look forward to working with the team over the coming weeks and months”.
