5th July 2022, Brussels, Belgium: EuroHockey is committed to ensuring that hockey continues to be a sport for all. Our inclusive values are an integral part of our development activities and we continue to grow with each passing year.
This year the EuroHockeyID Championships take place in Pinoke HC alongside the FIH Women’s World Cup! A change from the ‘usual’ as 2021 proved impossible to run the event alongside the 2021 EuroHockey Championships! The finals venue is the national stadium of the Dutch Hockey Federation (KNHB) and current host of the FIH Women’s World Cup and the previous host of the EuroHockey Championship and EuroHockey ID Championship.
Teams from Belgium, France, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, England, Germany, the Czech Republic, and The Netherlands will be participating!
6th July will see all the standard Team Briefing meetings along with checking the divisioning of the teams. This is to ensure fairness on the field! Teams also have the chance to visit the Women’s World Cup!
7th and 8th July will be the competitive games in the Championship, Trophy, and Challenges.
9th July will see the Finals of all 3 divisions, with all teams having the chance to play on the World Cup pitch!
