Who's Qualified?
Nations have been battling it out to book their places at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre next summer during a long and nail biting qualification process!

World number two England qualify as hosts while world number one the Netherlands and world number three Argentina both secured their places with strong performances at the World League Semi Finals earlier this summer.

Australia were crowned Oceania Cup champions to book their place in London while New Zealand’s top five finish at the World League Semi Finals in June saw them qualify. 

Germany and the USA contested the final at the World League Semi Finals in Johannesburg, the USA came out on top but both teams confirmed their places in London by appearing in the final.

China and Korea made top five finishes at the World League Semi Finals in Brussels to confirm their World Cup spots while a sixth place finish in Johannesburg was enough to see Japan qualify.

Both Italy and Spain secured their places by virtue of being the highest finishers below teams who had already qualified in their World League campaigns.

There were to be agonising waits for Belgium, Ireland, South Africa and India whose spots were only confirmed in the last few weeks.

For Belgium finishing eighth in Brussels was eventually enough while Ireland were able to qualify as Australia and New Zealand reached the final of the Oceania Cup meaning an extra qualifying spot went to them for their performance in Johannesburg.

India won the Asia Cup by defeating China in a shootout to qualify after South Africa were crowned Hockey African Cup of Nations champions having already secured their place at home in Johannesburg in July.
