Women’s Hockey World Cup 2018 Public Ballot

I was lucky enough to go to some hockey at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and it was a brilliant experience even though I only saw the 11-12th place play off! Live international level hockey is one of the world’s great sporting spectacles and TV just can’t do it justice. Going to the event will be a fantastic day out and if you have little ones it will definitely inspire them to start or continue playing hockey so I urge you to see if you can make it.
Hope to see you there!
