Great Britain vs New Zealand
Olympic Games Semi-Final
Wednesday 17th August
9pm UK time


The game will be shown live on the BBC.

The winner of this match will face either Holland or Germany in the final on Friday, and the loser goes into the bronze medal match against the loser of the other semi-final.

Friday's schedule sees the bronze medal match at 5pm UK time, then the final at 9pm UK time. Having won bronze at London in 2012, our women are giving their all to take more glory in Rio this time around.

Both of our remaining games promise to be absolute crackers, and we are guaranteed to be fighting for a medal come Friday, so whatever plans you had in mind, change them!


The last time we faced New Zealand it was a wonderful game at the Champions Trophy, Alex Danson bagging a hat-trick to ensure a 4-3 win for Danny Kerry's side, watch the video below!
