From Spring 2014, hockey will benefit from the London 2012 legacy venue, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, set in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Eton Manor.
With two world class hockey pitches, the new venue will be home to a number of hockey clubs in East London – an area that has traditionally struggled for good quality hockey facilities.
In August 2015, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will host the men’s and women’s EuroHockey Nations Championships featuring England. And each year, a number of major England Hockey events will be held at the legacy venue including national finals for adults and young people, and international fixtures and tournaments.
• 3,000 capacity hockey stadium, including 500 covered seats
• Potential to increase seating up to 15,000 with temporary overlay to support major events
• Additional floodlit, water-based hockey training pitch
