‘Together, we can achieve more than alone.’ At
Rabobank, this is the one core principle that continues to carry us
forward. And this theme is central to our hockey campaign. Rabobank
believes in working together on the basis of respect, appreciation and
involvement. And working together has been the basis of our 16-year
relationship with the hockey community.


Working together, taking

responsibility together, combining knowledge and expertise and sharing
it locally. Working together to create sustainable social unity. And we
have already achieved a lot: more members, more clubs, World Cups,
Olympic success…

Together we are working towards new goals: an
even better future for hockey, with the World Championships in The Hague
in 2014 as a high point. And as we move towards the World
Championships, we will show how working together can be put into
practice. Together we are going to write history. Together we are going
to celebrate new successes.
