SPAR & Tops Indoor Hockey IPT 2024, exciting action to unfold in Cape Town

The much-anticipated 2024 SPAR South African Indoor Hockey IPT powered by TOPS at SPAR is set to kick off amidst great enthusiasm and anticipation in the Mother City this week. The event, scheduled to take place at the Wynberg Military Base and University of Cape Town (UCT) in Cape Town from 28 February to 2 March 2024 , promises an electrifying display of talent and sportsmanship.

There will be A Section and B Section for both the men’s and women’s competitions.

A Section matches will be available for live streaming on the SuperSport Schools application ensuring fans across the nation can witness the thrilling encounters firsthand. The tournament features defending champions who are eager to uphold their titles and fetch their names in history once again.

Kwazulu-Natal (KZN) Raiders, the reigning champions in the Women’s category, are on the quest for an unprecedented fourth consecutive title, while hometown favourites Western Province men aim to secure their fifth consecutive championship win. The stage is set for intense battles and remarkable performances as teams compete at the highest level.

In anticipation of the event, Shaune Baaitjies, Interim CEO of South African Hockey, expressed the significance of SPAR and TOPS at SPAR support towards the tournament, stating, “The commitment and support from SPAR and tops are invaluable in nurturing the growth of indoor hockey in our nation. Their dedication to the sport enables us to showcase top-tier talent and foster a culture of excellence within our hockey community.”

“The SPAR Group is delighted to award the best provincial indoor hockey teams an opportunity to compete against each other for national honours. We draw inspiration from last year’s successful activation of FIH Indoor Hockey World Cup which we presented, a platform which has by far increased awareness of indoor hockey around the country. Working together with TOPS at SPAR which focusses on men’s hockey, and through our sponsorship efforts with other partners we hope to promote Indoor Hockey to even greater heights and create opportunities for the up-and-coming players who strive to play for their provinces and country” said Mpudi Maubane, SPAR National PR, Communications & Sponsorships Manager.

Fans eager to witness the thrilling action can secure their tickets through the South African   Hockey Fan Application, ensuring they don’t miss out on any of the exhilarating moments that await. All updates will be posted on the SA Hockey media channels.
