Asics America Corp, the USA-based subsidiary of the Japanese sportswear manufacturer, has extended its sponsorship of USA Field Hockey, the sport's national governing body, until after the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Asics, which in 2009 became the largest corporate sponsor in USA Field Hockey history, remains the organisation's official exclusive sponsor of footwear, apparel and accessories.
Steve Locke, executive director of USA Field Hockey, said: "Asics has been a great supporter in helping grow our national teams over the last four years and we are excited to be continuing this partnership. We share a vision to excel on the international stage and are proud to have our men’s and women’s national teams outfitted and equipped in Asics as we build to Rio 2016."
As well as the senior national teams, Asics supplies apparel for USA Field Hockey Olympic Development events including the men’s and women’s junior national teams, National Futures Championship and Women’s National Championship.
