First Car Rental is proud to have played a vital role in the 2015 African Hockey Championships, sponsoring turnkey transport solutions to all the teams at the Championship.

The 2015 African Hockey Championships took place from 23 October to 1 November 2015 at the Randburg Astro, Johannesburg, and saw national men's and women's teams from seven African countries, including South Africa, battle it out over the nine days for the African champion title.

South Africa's men's and women's teams dominated throughout the championship, with both teams reaching and winning their respective finals.

The SA men beat Egypt 4-2, while the SA women beat Ghana 3-0.

South Africa's victory at the African Hockey Championship guarantees both the men's and women's national teams a place in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
