HOCKEY CLUB - 8th to 23rd July 2017

  • Early bird tickets available to hockey schools and clubs
  • 20 of the world’s best hockey teams on show

Johannesburg, South Africa: SA Hockey is in the position to offer you, the hockey playing schools, an early bird offer to bring your kids, staff and parents to watch the very best that world hockey has to offer.

Our national men’s and women’s players will have the opportunity to test themselves against the very best in the world of hockey, on home soil. With FIH Hero World Ranking points on offer, it becomes a pivotal event on the hockey calendar for teams wanting to qualify for the 2018 Hockey World Cups and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. 20 of the world’s best men’s and women’s national teams will take part in these Hockey World Cup 2018 qualifiers between 8-23 July at Wits Hockey Club. With 16 days of non-stop world-class hockey, there’s a number of hugely exciting matches for fans to take in.

In the women’s tournament:

Pool A: England, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Poland.

Pool B: Argentina, USA, South Africa, India, Chile.

In the men’s tournament:

Pool A: Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Japan, France.

Pool B: Germany, Belgium, South Africa, Ireland, Egypt.

We need the support of the schools and the hockey community to make this event BIG, BOLD, PACKED & LOUD. Apart from top quality hockey being played, the event promises a wide range of entertainment for all ages. Artisanal food, beer gardens for the parents, retail therapy for those that need it, live music, meet the players AND entertainment for the kids, we want to host an event that is fan-focused, youthcentric, fresh and an all round fantastic experience.

We will soon be announcing a South African first in the provision of food and beverage services at a sporting event for all 16 days of The Hockey World League Semi-Finals. Say goodbye to the standard chips and boerewors rolls and hello to artisan food stalls and home style dishes. The hardest decision you will face is “Coffee to the right?” or “Hockey to the left?”

Being held at The Wits Education Campus in Parktown, this venue offers spectators free secure parking.

As part of the hockey family, we are offering exclusive school group bookings to schools who wish to make group bookings for their students and broader community. This exclusive offer will allow schools to make group bookings and retain 10% of the total booking fee.

Space is limited! For any queries or to confirm your booking please contact Jamie Chisholm (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by the 15th of June 2017.
