Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup 2018 - Provision of Security Services

England Hockey is a limited company that is not for profit with an annual turnover of circa £10m. England Hockey is responsible for the strategic direction for the sport, undertakes a lead role in developing the image and brand of the sport, of marketing it and its governance. Hosting major events is a key strand of England Hockey’s strategy.

England Hockey is excited to be playing host to the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in the summer of 2018. For further details of the event, including the schedule please see the event web site here.

With the prestige of the event, importance of the event from a performance perspective and increased expectations from all our client groups, a comprehensive, efficient, customer focused Security Service is required. The current Severe threat level in the UK requires a quality, experienced approach supporting the safe delivery of the event for all.

Due the profile of the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup 2018, England Hockey is currently reviewing the provision of Security Services to England Hockey. This has led to the release of this ITT and this exciting opportunity.

England Hockey works in partnership with London Legacy Development Corporation and Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre. As part of the licensing agreement, on event the chosen provider will report directly into Vibrant Partnerships, the Operator of Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in relation to all matters of spectator safety and security. Vibrant Partnerships will also be included throughout the tender assessment process.

Following this process, England Hockey will award a single contract relating to Security Services for the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup 2018.

In addition to England Hockey has secured participation for both international teams (men and women) in the FIH Pro League from 2019 onwards. This will see England Hockey hosting up to 16 international matches annually as part of this global league for which further opportunities could follow to the successful Bidder.
