The aim of Your World Cup was to inspire clubs to utilise the increased visibility of hosting a home World Cup to inspire their communities to get involved with hockey. 

England Hockey launched the campaign in November 2017 with six of the England squad members sharing their club stories and the importance of the club world helping them get to where they are today.

Inspiring a generation, supporting schools, offering a range of ways to play, celebrating and supporting people, during the event and post event legacy were the six areas the campaign focused on by providing support, tools and resources to help clubs develop in whichever way they choose.

Clubs truly used the visibility of the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup as; 
•Over 50% of hockey clubs in England were part of Your World Cup
•Clubs offered an additional 1000+ opportunities for people to get active with hockey
•More than 750 clubs from across the country attended the Vitality Hockey Women's World Cup
•20,000 players cards were distributed nationwide

Great events included Durham University HC hosting a World Cup school festival, Caradon HC turning their 7-a-side festival into Your World Cup festival and 1,000 East London children playing at the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup venue.

A word from the captain

England captain Alex Danson is over the moon how the hockey family came together ahead of the World Cup; ‘It is simply amazing to know over 400 clubs are a part of the Your World Cup campaign; our clubs are already doing incredible work in their local areas, giving lots of opportunities to young and old to get involved in hockey!

'To have the clubs getting behind it and embracing that World Cup fever is incredible for our sport. Keep up the amazing work!’
