The Welsh Senior Mens Side will host their Scottish counterparts on the weekend of the 23rd to the 26th June as they ramp up their preparations for the Mens European Hockey Championships in Monchengladbach, Germany in August.
The Scots will visit Cardiff for the four-day training weekend, with in-house matches taking place across their visit. With a lack of home internationals in the calendar this summer, Hockey Wales are delighted to be able to open one of the training matches to the hockey public, and give the first opportunity to see the side that represented Wales so well at the FIH World Cup in India back in January.
The Match will take place at 2:00pm on Saturday 24th June and tickets are available here.
Tickets are free for children under 11 years of age, and there’s also opportunities for children aged 13years and under to be Mascots for both sides, so if you’d like your child to have the opportunity, please register here.
On Hosting the camp, Kevin Johnson, Hockey Wales Director of Performance stated:
“It’s great to be able to open the doors of the National Hockey Centre for the public, enabling the guys to feel some home support following their efforts in India and before they depart again for Germany. The home crowd gives the team such a buzz and they’re very excited to be able to play in front of home fans”.
Paul Whapham, Hockey Wales CEO added:
“It’s important that we are able to welcome the Hockey Wales family to an ‘International’ occasion at the National Centre. It’s an opportunity to thank them for their continued support, to back the men before they go to compete in Monchengladbach and thank our sponsors also for their backing”.
