After the succes of Holcombe Women in Europe last season, the club hierachy moved quickly to bid to host this seasons European Club Trophy. Often touted as the UEFA Cup of Hockey, Holcombe will be looking to retain the title they won so dramatically in a shootout last year in Ireland.
The event will see eight teams compete over a four-day period, taking place on 19-22 April 2019.
“We are delighted to have been selected as host of the EuroHockey Club Trophy (Women) 2019. It is our first time hosting a EuroHockey event, and one that will give a buzz to our members and local community.
After a successful EuroHockey campaign last season for our Ladies 1XI, it seemed only fitting that the club applied to host the 2019 Trophy and allowed our hockey family to share in the EuroHockey excitement. It will certainly help the club and hockey family increase the visibility of our sport.
Our volunteers will work tirelessly to ensure that players, spectators, EHF officials, media and sponsors receive a warm welcome at Holcombe Park.” Said Jon Rye – Holcombe Chairman
