Hockey Ireland has been awarded the right to host both the U18 Girls and U18 Boys Eurohockey Championships! The tournament will take place in Cork from Sunday 24th till Saturday 30th July 2016.
Both the Irish U18 Boys and U18 Girls squads will take part in the tournament that will see the best young players from around Europe competing against each other. This year the Irish U18 Girls stormed to victory in Mori at the Eurohockey Championships II to earn themselves promotion to the top division, while the U18 boys had an equally impressive run and finished in 5th place in Santander.
The awarding of this tournament means that Ireland will host a major international hockey tournament for 3 consecutive years; Women’s World League 2 March 2015, U18 Eurohockey Championships 2016, and Men’s World League 2 in 2017. Such an achievement is a testament to the success of our national squads, at all ages, as well as the growth of our sport all across the country. It is also a vote of confidence in Hockey Ireland’s ability to host an international tournament to the highest standard.
Hockey Ireland CEO Mike Heskin said “This is a great achievement for Hockey Ireland to be awarded another international tournament. It is testament to the product we deliver and I thank all the staff and volunteers who are key to that delivery. We’re very much looking forward to hosting the tournament in Cork and showcasing the highest level of youth hockey, many of these players will be the stars of the future”.
