Wapping Hockey Club and Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) residential agency have signed a one-year £10,000 shirt sponsorship deal.

The deal coincides with today’s unveiling of JLL’s revamped Canary Wharf office, located in the vicinity of the club’s home ground.

The deal installs JLL as away shirt sponsor for Wapping HC’s 22 teams, while the company will also lend its name to the prestigious player of the season trophies for both Wapping HC’s winter season and the blue chip City & Wharf Hockey League held during the summer months.

Wapping HC Chairman Stuart Burnside accepted the generous cheque from Charlotte Malone, Director of JLL, at the agency’s office re-launch in Canary Wharf today.
