Confirmed: Men's and Women's Squads For Final Pro League Games

England have named their squads to take on Belgium this weekend in their final fixtures of the 2022 FIH Hockey Pro League season.

The teams do battle on both days of the weekend:
Sat 18 Jun - England v Belgium (W&M), 2pm & 4:30pm
Sun 19 Jun - England v Belgium (W&M), 1pm & 3:30pm

Saturday’s matches are now at 90% capacity so act quickly to book your place at the last international matches in London until May 2023. Tickets for both days are on sale now, starting at £7.50 for children and £17.50 adults. A ticket for one day gives access to both the women’s and men’s games.

There are three changes for the men, who welcome back Wimbledon trio Liam Ansell, Duncan Scott and Rhys Smith as they take on a Belgian side who are the current Olympic and World Champions and one of the most exciting sides on the planet to watch. James Oates, Matt Ramshaw and Peter Scott miss out on this occasion. Phil Roper will make his 100th England appearance if he plays in both matches. 

David Ralph names the same women’s squad from the team’s previous matches against the Netherlands. It contains the 18 women that will take part in this summer’s Commonwealth Games, World Cup and Euro Qualifiers, with the addition of World Cup reserves Darcy Bourne and Lizzie Neal.

Both teams are aiming to move as high as fourth after this weekend's matches.

This weekend represents a great opportunity for fans to send off both squads ahead of an amazing summer for the sport, with the women’s World Cup only a couple of weeks away, then the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham for both squads before the women’s EuroHockey Qualifiers in Durham at the end of August.
