Anniversary International - 3 October

Toshiba 3

The Anniversary International in partnership with Toshiba TVs marking 30 years since Great Britain men's Olympic Gold medal win at Seoul 1988.

The historic Great Britain Men's Olympic Hockey Gold medal at Seoul 1988 has been an iconic moment in British sporting history for many years. 

Barry Davies’ legendary commentary line –  “Where were the Germans? But, frankly who cares!”  – also went down in history and players such as Sean Kerly became household names. 

This October it’s the 30th Anniversary of the gold medal and to mark the occasion we’re hosting a Anniversary International match on the 3 October. In partnership with Toshiba TVs, the  Anniversary International sees Great Britain's men take on Belgium, ranked no 3 in the World. Two of the best teams in the World today will make for a superb night of sport.

The match will take place at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Tickets are onsale to a night of world-class hockey and a large dose of Olympic nostalgia, with 1988 legends making guest appearances. The match is also new Head Coach Danny Kerry’s first match in charge of the team.
