Lausanne: The International Hockey Federation (FIH) officially launched the pre-registration for tickets for the 2018 Hockey World Cups taking place in India and England next year.
The women’s event will be held at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London between 21 July and 5 August, 2018. Meanwhile, the men’s competition will take place at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar in November/December. The fans can now register their interest in purchasing tickets via a brand new Hockey World Cups 2018 website.
With demand for tickets set to be high, by signing-up, fans will be kept up to date with all the latest news from both events, including key ticket dates, pricing and any exclusive offers over the coming months.
On Friday, England Hockey launches a Hockey Family priority access window offering members of hockey clubs affiliated with England Hockey and previous international match purchasers the first opportunity to secure a limited amount of tickets, from 6-24 April 2017. This follows confirmation of the women’s World Cup session schedule which can be viewed on the official website. Then, in August, England Hockey will run a public ballot placing those who apply into a draw for their selected tickets, in order to meet the massive demand which is expected for the event.
Speaking about this, FIH CEO Jason McCracken said: “The launch of the new World Cups website and pre-registration for tickets marks an important milestone in the countdown to the Hockey World Cups. Apart from the Olympic Games, our World Cups are the pinnacle of the sport. The content being shared across our digital channels will really boost excitement amongst fans and athletes in the lead up to these events, which I’m sure will further increase during the Hockey World League Semi-Finals – our World Cup qualifiers in June and July.”
