Schedule Changes

Due to the continued Covid pandemic, a number of Great Britain's planned home fixtures scheduled to take place this summer have been postponed. This includes games against India and China originally due to be contested on 8-9 May as well as the double header against Argentina on 15-16 May.

GB's men and women will still contest the following matches unless stated otherwise:

  • GB Men v Germany: 12-13 May 2021, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre 
  • GB Women v Germany: 12-13 May 2021, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre 
  • GB Women v USA: 22-23 May 2021, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre 
  • GB Men v Spain: 22-23 May 2021, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre 

Great Britain’s FIH Hockey Pro League Matches To Be Played Behind Closed Doors 

After much consultation with partners and the Government, Great Britain Hockey have made the decision to move all of our remaining men’s and women’s FIH Hockey Pro League ‘Presented By Vitality’ home matches, scheduled to be played in May 2021, behind closed doors. 

Under the Government’s roadmap, all fixtures prior to the move to Step 3 - due to start on 17 May - are not allowed to invite spectators in to watch. 

After the 17 May, which is the earliest date from which spectators could return in a limited way to watch sport, there will still be significant restrictions in place. There is a risk of cancellation at very short notice and the spectator experience will be limited as we will not have the same activations, entertainment, retail or bar and catering facilities that are normally on offer at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre. 

We therefore wanted to make this decision as soon as possible to minimise any inconvenience and travel and accommodation costs for fans. 

Great Britain Hockey* would like to thank the teams at Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, Public Health Waltham Forest, BT Sport, FIH, DCMS and UK Sport for all their guidance and support to enable these matches to go ahead during these challenging times.
