Work is well underway at the Twickenham Stoop ahead of Great Britain’s games there on Sunday 23 June.
“These game are all part of our bigger plan to promote the sport, tied in very closely with hosting the FIH Pro League”, said England Hockey Chief Executive Sally Munday.
“We are hugely excited about the opportunity to work with Harlequins, not just for the upcoming matches and the fact that we are testing these new pitch technologies, but also the long-term potential relationship with them. They have got some really exciting plans for the development of their stadium, and for us to be in the discussion stages of how that could work for both rugby and hockey in the future is really exciting. We’ve really enjoyed working with them to date. Their values are very similar to ours in terms of how they go about their business, and we are excited about the opportunity we are going to get on 23rd June to see this new technology in action. We’re really grateful also to Sport England for their appetite to support this innovation and make it possible.”
Tickets are on sale now from only £11.50 for U18s and £34 for adults; prices include entry to both fixtures.
Britain’s men take on New Zealand at 2pm on Sun 23 Jun, then the women face NZ at 4:30pm.
