CMG helps England to victory in Roller Hockey Championships Tuesday 23 January 2001 PDF Print The England team was victorious in the recent World Roller Hockey Championships 2000, at Buckmore Park in Kent. CMG, the global Information & Communications Technology services group, was the major sponsor of both the event and the England team. Coverage of the event was shown on the Sky Sports TV channel in January, and CMG also took the opportunity to advertise during the commercial breaks. The England team won a hard fought final against Holland, with the 2-0 scoreline reflecting just how evenly matched the competition was throughout. CMG provided computer equipment to help the organisers run an efficient championship, including up to the minute results on the internet, for fans who could not make it to the matches. The fast and highly skilled sport relies on companies like CMG providing such financial support to host events, as it is currently under-funded. Adrian Smith, managing director, from CMG, said: "We were delighted to see the England team excelling in the competition. Their desire to win was clear, and they performed to a high-standard throughout. We were delighted to see the real sportsmanship that all of the 16 competing teams displayed throughout the competition - not least in the final. "We congratulate the organisers on a great event and are thrilled that England took the trophy. As CMG has headquarters in England and Holland it was a particularly thrilling final for us. But obviously, it was great that the home nation won - we were proud to have sponsored them."
