The expansion of the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre stadium is a result of the huge interest around this much-anticipated event on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, featuring the best teams in Europe including both England teams who will be aiming for medals. The Unibet EuroHockey Championships 2015 forms part of an exciting British summer of sports events, alongside cricket’s Investec Ashes series, the Rugby World Cup. It provides another chance for the British public to show their national pride and unite behind their teams as they have a realistic chance of silverware – England’s women’s team won a Silver medal at the 2013 Championships.

Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre is hockey’s Olympic legacy stadium and the event offers crowds an opportunity to relive the atmosphere created by the hockey at the London 2012 Olympics, where it was the highest-attended team event with 630,000 people enjoying the thrilling action.

The event promises a fantastic day out for families and general sports fans. There will be entertainment on and off the field, with a large fan park offering a full day’s activities for all ages.

England Hockey’s Commercial Director Jonathan Cockcroft commented: “Hockey is growing as a spectator sport, and this stadium expansion demonstrates that more and more people are realising what a great day out hockey is. Not only is the action on the pitch fast-paced and exciting to watch, but we provide a fun environment for families. We’re confident that fans will have a great time at the Unibet Eurohockey Championships 2015”.

Hospitality is also available at the event, with two packages available, and there are still sponsorship opportunities available for the event.
