10 weeks to go until women's Argentina Hockey World League Final

September 28, 2015

Saturday 26 September marked 10 weeks to go until what will be one of the biggest hockey events of the year - the women's Argentina Hockey World League Final in Rosario, Argentina.

The Final concludes the second edition of the Hockey World League League which started back in Singapore in June 2014.

It brings together eight of the world's best national women's hockey teams, who will go head to head as they battle to decide who will be crowned Hockey World League champions.

These teams will be represented by the best players in the world - hockey heroes and rising stars. 

With all the teams taking part in Rosario already qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, it is certainly shaping up to be an exciting event. Fans will experience displays of exceptional skill and outstanding physical fitness, with non-stop action and plenty of goals. 

Reigning Olympic and World Champions Netherlands will be looking to defend their title against many of the top ranked teams. They won the last Hockey World League Final when it was held in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina in 2013.

This year they will be up against Australia, ranked number two in the FIH World Rankings; Argentina (3); New Zealand (4); Germany (5); China (6); Great Britain (7, based on England’s ranking) and Korea (9).

The Estadio Mundialista de Hockey in Rosario will hold this year's event. It was built to host the 2010 women's BDO FIH World Cup before later being used to stage the 2012 women’s Champions Trophy.

Up to 6,000 people will be able to watch each and every game live at the venue throughout the nine days of competition, while millions more around the world will be able to watch on TV and online.
