At the media session to promote the forthcoming Hockey World League Finals (17-26 Nov) & subsequent World Cup, the England team captain Alex Danson was in a buoyant mood and eagerly awaiting the start of the tournament.
Danson believes that it will be great to have the World Cup in England and build on the growing support. England Hockey will be hosting the World Cup event, in July and August 2018 on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. A ticket ballot earlier this year saw over 100,000 tickets applied for. Indeed, at one point 9 million viewers turned in to watch the dramatic Olympic final in 2016 which was finally decided by the goalkeeping heroics of Maddie Hinch.
