Don’t miss out on what is set to be one of the biggest events in the history of the sport. Register for the Public Ballot in order to see fast-paced, action-packed, world-class hockey at its best, live in London next year.
Sports fans from across the world will be able to take one step closer to the Hockey Women’s World Cup London 2018 tomorrow (Saturday 19 August) as the Public Ballot officially opens.
With the showpiece event taking place in London’s Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park between 21 July and 5 August 2018, demand for tickets is proving to be extremely high.
By pre-registering via fih.ch/tickets, fans will be the first to receive the link to the official Ballot website on 19 August, whilst those who don’t will be able to enter the Ballot directly on the website from this date onwards.
Once the Ballot opens, fans will be able to select which sessions they would like to apply for and then how many tickets and at what price category.
With high demand for certain sessions, there is a limit of six tickets per person for the three England pool matches, the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final. There is however a limit of 50 tickets per person for all other sessions. Fans can apply for tickets in as many sessions as they like across the whole event.
There are three different Categories of seats available. Category A tickets offer higher value premium seating with the best views. Category B seats are good at a mid-price point and entry-level options at very affordable rates fall under Category C.
Reduced prices for children and young people under the age of 18 (at the time of the event) are available in all three Categories (A, B and C) whilst children under the age of two at the time of the event do not require a ticket if they sit on the knee of a ticket holder.
Once the ballot closes on 6 September, tickets will be allocated based on the demand received for each session. Where the number of requests exceeds the number of seats available, tickets will be allocated randomly.
The launch of the Public Ticket Ballot follows a hugely successful ‘Hockey Family Priority Window’ which gave members of hockey clubs affiliated with England Hockey and previous international match purchasers the first opportunity to secure a limited amount of tickets. Following the Public Ballot, general public sale is expected to begin later in 2017.
News about this event is regularly updated on the official Hockey Women’s World Cup London 2018 website on worldcup2018.hockey/women whilst other updates are regularly posted via FIH Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
