The University of Westminster’s Quintin Hogg Memorial Sports Ground in Chiswick, London, will host the women’s Investec Hockey World League Semi Final in June.
England Hockey Chief Executive, Sally Munday, said:
Following the success of hockey at the Olympic Games last summer we have seen unprecedented interest from people wanting to play and watch our sport. The Investec World League Semi Final provides the perfect opportunity for the British public to see many of our Olympians on home turf again after our women’s team captured the love of the nation last summer.
Hockey was the third largest spectator sport at London 2012 with more than 630,000 people visiting the Riverbank Arena. Following the Games and a successful Hockey Nation campaign, an extra 30,000 adults picked up a stick during 2012, making hockey the biggest growing team sport in the UK last year.
