Indoor hockey has a special place in the hearts of the German hockey family. We look forward to working with Heiko and his team to deliver a fantastic 5-day festival of hockey for players and fans alike.”
Heiko von Glahn, Secretary-General, DHB added “We would like to thank the European Hockey Federation very much for the trust they have placed in us to host the EuroHockey Indoor Hockey Championships Women and Men in 2022. For us, indoor hockey continues to be a great stage for presenting our sport and our talents to a broad public in an attractive format. The last indoor events, such as the Indoor World Cup Men and Women 2018 and the EuroHockey Indoor Championships, Men, 2020 in Berlin have proven this. Together with our sponsoring partners and the whole German hockey family, we are therefore looking forward to this top event, at which we will be pleased to welcome Europe’s top teams to Germany.”
