History

Founded in 1970 by the European Hockey Federation, the EuroHockey Nations Championship initially began as a men’s-only competition, with the women’s event being added in 1984. Organised by the European Hockey Federation, the EuroHockey Nations Championship involves the top eight European national teams competing for glory.

Both the Men’s and Women’s Championships were last hosted by England in 2007 when they were held in Manchester. In addition the Women’s Championships were held at Pickets Lock, North London in 1987.

Top Teams

Originally played every four years and now every two since 2003, over the years Germany (men) and the Netherlands (women) have been the most successful participants in the EuroHockey Nations Championships, each with a total of eight titles out of the 14 championships that have been played, while hosts England are in the top four for both genders.

The home teams have a tendency to make it into the top four, with over half of all the competitions featuring the home nation in the finals or bronze play-off match.

Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre

The last EuroHockey Nations Championship took part in Belgium at Braxgata HC, and in 2015 the competition moves to a new venue, steeped in the recent history of the London 2012 Olympics. The venue was built of the Olympic legacy scheme, created to ensure that sport doesn’t begin and end at the 2012 Olympics, allowing crowds to enjoy high-level sport year in, year out, and continuing long into the future.

You can find out more about EuroHockey and the other EuroHockey competitions on the European Hockey Federation website.
