Our national teams need your support

SA Hockey is calling on support from schools and the hockey community to make the event BIG, BOLD, PACKED and LOUD. The plan is host an event that is fan-focused, youth-centric, fresh and an all-round fantastic experience. There’s not just top-quality hockey on offer – the event promises a wide range of entertainment for all ages. Fans can also expect Artisanal food, beer gardens for the parents, retail therapy for those that need it, live music, meet the players AND entertainment for the kids

SA Hockey will soon be announcing a South African first in the provision of food and beverage services at a sporting event for all 16 days of The Hockey World League Semi-Finals. Say goodbye to the standard chips and boerewors rolls and hello to artisan food stalls and home style dishes. The hardest decision you will face is “Coffee to the right?” or “Hockey to the left?”
