International hockey will return to the Twickenham Stoop this June when England take on the Netherlands in the FIH Hockey Pro League.
It will be three years since Big Stadium Hockey made its first appearance at the home of Quins and the pitch turned blue. Back in 2019 Great Britain won both matches, so it's a return to winning turf.
You can expect all the speed, excitement, skills and end to end action as some of the world's best line up against each other. The FIH Pro League is the annual competition where the best men's and women's hockey teams in the world go head-to-head with each other to see who will be crowned champions.
This time round there will be two days of action at The Stoop on what is the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend (4-5 June) with a double bank holiday on the Thursday and Friday.
England's women and men host the Dutch in back-to-back double headers, and it's set to be the biggest hockey weekend this country has seen since London 2012.
England's teams are likely to feature a number of Team GB Olympians from Tokyo including some of the women's bronze medal winning squad, as well as some new faces to the senior international scene. The Netherlands women are the reigning Olympic champions and the men current European champions, so the level of competition and rivalry doesn't get any higher. As well two games each day, there's a host of entertainment on and off the pitch making it a great day out with friends and family.
