womens world cup

The biggest hockey event ever to be held in the UK is coming to London - the Hockey Women's World Cup 2018 - and your chance to secure tickets to see Pure Hockey Gold is coming on Saturday 19 August!

This massive event will be held at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and will see England’s women take on the very best in the pinnacle of the sport.

I’ve never been to an international hockey event before, will this be a good day out?
In short, yes! Hockey is a brilliant sport to watch live, and this tournament will showcase just how fast-paced, action packed and highly skilled the game is. You’ll be able to see English members of the Great Britain Olympic squad battling for gold to go alongside their Olympic Gold medal and we are planning the biggest fan zone we’ve ever staged for a hockey event ensuring there will be something for all the family to enjoy.

How can I secure my tickets?
Due to the incredibly high demand for tickets, we will be running a ballot system to ensure everyone gets a fair chance to get the tickets they would like. This ballot will go live at 9am on Saturday 19 August, and will close at 6pm on Wednesday 6 September.

You simply need to register, select which sessions and tickets you’d like and give payment details. You will not be charged at this point. The ballot will then be drawn after the 6 September and if successful you will be notified and charged for your tickets by the end of September. Please note, once entered the ballot you can log back in and amend your order up until 6pm on 6 September.

What has happened so far?
A  Hockey Family priority ticket sale was launched in April 2017 where an unprecedented 21,000 tickets were sold in the two weeks the window was open, a gold rush to see Pure Hockey Gold! This demonstrates the huge demand there is for tickets, so make sure you enter the ballot on Saturday 19 August.

Which teams will be playing?
As well as England, the Netherlands, Argentina, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, China, Korea and South Africa have all qualified so far and will be going for Gold in London next year. With the top 9 teams in the World all qualified, England will need all the home support they can get so make sure you are ready to cheer them on!

How can I ensure I see England play when applying for tickets in the ballot?
Whilst we don’t know the full schedule as some teams still need to qualify, we have plotted when England will play each game so you can ensure you select these tickets in the ballot.

You can have a look at the schedule here, and remember – the England sessions are going to be very oversubscribed considering applying for another match as well to give yourself the best opportunity to be at this once in a lifetime event.

Can I wait until general sale to buy England tickets?
General sale will be at a later date to be announced, but if you want to guarantee England tickets then do not wait until then. We anticipate all England tickets to sell out in the Public Ballot so if you want to watch England on home soil then make sure you apply in the Ballot.
