We already hosted twice the Women’s Indoor Trophy in Vienna. The event will take place in the Wiener Stadthalle, the venue where the Indoor World Cup 2007 and the European Indoor Nation Championship 2014 took place. We are sure that the event will be kept in mind by all the players, officials and spectators. Our team was in the last two years twice runners up behind the German champion (Mühlheim and HTHC) and so we will try to become champion in our home town in 2017.”
