Read on to find out what our fans have been saying and make sure you’re not missing out when the Unibet EuroHockey Championships are in town this summer!
On the pitch
Whether it’s Florian Fuchs tearing through the opposition’s defence, Alex Danson’s pin point accuracy in front of goal or Mink van der Weerden powering home a drag flick, you know you’re in for a treat when watching an international hockey match. Power, pace, precision and goals are just a few things fans can expect when enjoying this action packed sport….and the Unibet EuroHockey Championships 2015 will be no different! Here’s what two fans had to say about the high quality hockey they recently watched:
“Brilliant day. I was lucky enough to be on the front row and I witnessed some top quality hockey, played competitively but in good spirit.”
“It was a brilliant afternoon of stunning hockey. We will come again.”
With the stadium seating capacity being extended to accommodate nearly 5000 fans at the Unibet EuroHockey Championships, the atmosphere is set to be buzzing, as these spectators found when watching Great Britain vs. Australia last month:
“It was a pleasure to attend and the atmosphere was amazing. Thoroughly worth the travelling and I would definitely go again!”
“Really enjoyable day with a great atmosphere.”
Supporters from across Europe are set to come and cheer on their favourite nation and we’re expecting a sea of orange as the Netherlands take on Spain in the first clash of the tournament. As the players take to the stage Het Wilhelmus and La Marcha Real will be sung as the tension builds, set for an explosive start.
A perfect day for all the family
As well as all the action on the pitch, there will be plenty to enjoy off it if when visiting Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. If you’re coming to the Championships to enjoy a family day out, there’s plenty to do around the stadium. If the children have been inspired by what they’ve seen on the pitch, they can try their hand at hockey and there will even be an opportunity to meet the players.
“We had a brilliant day, the children were interviewed by the MC, mascots were great and we appreciated all of the players taking the time to sign autographs and pose for photos. My children have gone to their summer training tonight very inspired! We will come again for sure.”
“The whole experience was very positive for both my children and me. The facility was excellent, the catering outlets were very good and it was very easy to book tickets.”
