"Hockey is fast becoming a popular sport and the European Championships is a fantastic first event to be supporting England Hockey.
"These new travel packages will be a great way for hockey fans to get closer to the action this summer, where we'll be providing fantastic match seats and also exclusive access to the players, and the coaching sessions."
"This is the first time hockey fans will be able to book their travel and tickets together as a package and our new online portal makes booking very easy.
"We've also included guaranteed exclusive perks to make sure fans have a fantastic experience."
Jonathan Cockcroft, commercial and membership director at England Hockey, said: "We are delighted to have teamed up with Gullivers Sports Travel.
"The popularity of hockey is increasing all the time and with participation having grown by 30,000 people over the past year and major events drawing bigger crowds and more television coverage it's a great time for us to offer supporters new ways of following the England teams.
"With more than 40 years' know-how in delivering exceptional sporting experiences, Gullivers Sports Travel are ideally placed to encourage new fans to the sport and to ensure a seamless travel service for our existing supporters and participants."
Noel added: "It really is proving to be one of our most successful years to date, having recently secured new contracts with the governing body of Rugby League, and the Badminton World Federation Grand Prix Gold 2013. This latest deal completes a perfect hat trick."
