“There is hockey in Latin America! To grow the fan base and player participation within these communities in North America, we must invest in these countries and start developing players that will be the future of hockey in 15-20 years.” Said Amerigol President, Juan Carlos Otero. “Everything that hockey has and is - - the action, the speed, the dedication - - that's part of the DNA of the Latin and Caribbean community. It's a definite fit with the Latin and Caribbean community.”
HockeyTech is committed to bringing a digital transformation to the Latin American and Caribbean hockey community and is looking forward to expanding on the video technology that is currently being used in those regions. Streaming all Amerigol events live on HockeyTV is the first step to building awareness and providing accessibility for fans to stay connected to the game.
