Dear hockey fans,
We are thrilled to announce that AH&BC or simply "Amsterdam”, the oldest hockey club in the Netherlands, will host the finals of the Women’s European Hockey Club Cup ("EHCC”) over Easter, from Friday, April 19 to Monday, April 22, 2019.
All games will be played in Wagener Stadium, the leading hockey stadium in the Netherlands, where championship matches have been played for more than 70 years.
We hope you’ll come visit Amsterdam during this exciting event and watch the best of the best teams in women’s hockey battle it out for the European Championship.
The eight participating women’s teams come from six countries:
· Surbiton HC - England
· Der Club an der Alster - Germany
· UHC Hamburg - Germany
· Real Sociedad de Futbol - Spain
· GHC Ritmo Grodno - Belarus
· Loreto HC - Ireland

Several teams are bringing their U14 girls teams who will participate in an U14 tournament (Den Bosch, Junior FC, Club an der Alster, Surbiton and Amsterdam). We welcome the players, staff and fans of all these teams.
Next to this, the U12 ABN Amro 3x3 competition will take place, as will a mini-tournament for U14 boys teams from Club an der Alster, Amsterdam and other Dutch teams.
Fun at Amsterdam’s "Hockey Plaza”
Between the hockey matches, fans can visit Hockey Plaza – a festival terrain we’re creating on the complex. Hockey Plaza offers everything from live music to games to food trucks to shops including adidas, La Dress and the official AH&BC fan shop.
Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, January 23 at EHCC tickets. The event has a maximum capacity and is likely to sell out, so do buy early!
Thanks to all!
