Wow, we have made it Edition 20 of the magazine. From starting Hockey World News in 2015 as a social platform on Twitter. Instagram came in 2016, along with Facebook and later the website. As our reach grew, we started to look at Hockey World News a bit more seriously; a teammate made a throwaway comment back in the clubhouse after a hockey match that we should create a magazine of our own. That comment, only half-joking, has led us to where we are today. A lot of hard work, ups & downs and some great support from JDH, Ritual and Mercian, who without them backing our vision, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
The biggest thank you, though, goes to all of the hockey family that continue to download the magazine and sign up to the Patreon network and make a small pledge to help with the running costs of the magazine so we can continue to bring you some awesome content.
