<p class="">Hockey New Zealand is pleased with confirmed support for the Black Sticks Men and Women from High Performance Sport New Zealand (HPSNZ).<br>
<br>
Earlier today HPSNZ announced their investment schedule for the next two years with the Black Sticks Women given an increase in funding and the Black Sticks Men retaining their current level.<br>
<br>
Hockey New Zealand High Performance Director Terry Evans said the funding would allow both teams to continue building towards the target of winning medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.<br>
<br>
“We are very appreciative of the ongoing funding from HPSNZ. It is encouraging to see the belief in both our programmes, and that is certainly a sentiment we mirror as we now look to lay the ground work towards Tokyo.”<br>
<br>
Next year is the first step in the next Olympic cycle for both sides and along with preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, fans will see the world’s best teams in action on home soil in November at the FIH Women’s Hockey World League Final in Auckland.<br>
