With 100 days until the Men's Hockey World League Semi-Final in London, England, fans are being encouraged to buy their tickets now or miss out on what is one of the most important international hockey events of the year.


The Hockey World Cup 2018 qualifier takes place between 15-25 June 2017 in Lee Valley's Hockey and Tennis Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and will see 10 of the world’s best men’s hockey teams go head to head.

Six teams have already been confirmed so far for this showcase event, including hosts England, Rio 2016 Olympic gold medallists Argentina, reigning European champions Netherlands, Asian champions India, Korea and Pakistan.

Another four teams will qualify from the Hockey World League Round 2 events taking place between January and April 2017, with these remaining teams confirmed early April.

Sunday 18 June has been dubbed ‘Super Sunday’ and it is not difficult to see why. The first game of the day pairs Pakistan with India. With 11 Olympic titles between them this has historically been one of the fiercest rivalries in the game and it shows no sign of letting up.

India had the edge at the 2016 QNET Asian Champions Trophy so Pakistan will be out for revenge in what will be an action-packed encounter. Follow that up with hosts England going head to head with the Olympic Champions Argentina - it will be a day to remember.

The weekends are already selling fast with semi-final and final tickets as well as ‘Super Sunday’ places being snapped up by eager sports fans. There’s many more exciting matches throughout the week, with fans able to buy tickets via the official ticket website.

Hospitality packages are also available for those looking to entertain clients or enjoy a memorable day out with family and friends. VIP hospitality, including the best seats in the house, are included and can be purchased by clicking here.

Composed of four rounds and played over two years, the Hockey World League shines a spotlight on the sport around the world. Even the smallest hockey-playing nations have the opportunity to write their own chapter in hockey’s history books.

A lot is at stake for teams participating in these Hockey World League Semi-Finals. Whilst vital FIH Hero World Ranking points will be awarded depending on final standings, the top teams from each Semi-Final will qualify for the 2018 Hockey World Cups in India (men) and England (women) in addition to the Hockey World League Finals taking place in India (men) and New Zealand (women) later in 2017.

With the Hockey World League already underway, you can follow all the action from Round 2 over the coming months from locations around the world. Each event will have its own event page on but you can also keep up to date with all the latest information from the Hockey World League by following FIH on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
