17th August 2017: With many of the days sold out for the Rabo EuroHockey Championships we are delighted to announce that hockey fans who won’t make it to the amazing event in Amsterdam will be able to watch the games either on TV or online via our new Hockey Channel – www.eurohockeyTV.org
Amazing hockey deserves amazing commentators! We spoke to Nick Irvine ‘the voice of hockey’ who is leading the team of commentators at the Rabo EuroHockey Championships “These are exciting times for European Hockey and what better way to showcase those strengths than staging the Rabo EuroHockey Championships in Amsterdam ? Top teams deserve a great stage and the newly revamped Wagener Stadium – packed with true hockey fans – will provide just the backdrop to bring out the very best in our stars . I am excited too about our commentary team which will see Kate and Helen Richardson Walsh joining me for the women’s games while Simon Mason and Todd Williams will cover the men’s tournament. We can’t wait and we hope that you can join us . You won’t be disappointed.”
The official tournament website www.rabo-eurohockeychampionships2017.nl has a countdown clock to alert fans when a match is about to start. Five minutes before the start, a button with the word ‘livestream’ will appear next to the clock. This takes you to the specific live stream of the next match on www.eurohockeytv.org.
