The Euro Hockey League and the European Hockey Federation are pleased to announce the match schedule for the forthcoming EHL Final Four event. The competition, which also features the final of the women's EuroHockey Club Champions Cup, takes place at HC Bloemendaal (NED) on 18-19 May 2013.
The Semi Finals of the Euro Hockey League will take place on Saturday 18th, with Rot-Weiss Koln of Germany and Belgium's KHC Dragons going head-to-head at 1200 (UTC/GMT +1). Rot-Weiss and Dragons have met on one previous occasion in EHL competition, with the Belgian outfit eliminating Christopher Zeller's men in Round 2 of the 2010-11 season.
Host club HC Bloemendaal take on fellow Dutch outfit Amsterdam H&BC in the second Semi Final, which starts at 14.30. Bloemendaal legend Teun de Nooijer is aiming for one last moment of European glory before he hangs up his stick at the end of this season, but Amsterdam will be determined to ruin the party and seal their place in the EHL Final. It promises to be a truly fascinating game.
Sunday will feature three key matches as the European club season reaches its climax. The first match of the day - EHL's Bronze medal match - takes place at 1015. That game is followed at 1245 by the Final of the EuroHockey Club Champions Cup, which sees HC‘s Hertogenbosch and Laren MHC meet in an all-Dutch encounter. The final of the Euro Hockey League takes place at 1515, with the winner getting the chance to lift one the most sought after piece of silverware in men's club hockey - the Alain Danet Trophy.
The complete match schedule for the weekend can be found below.
