2024 Women’s Nations Cup to be played in Terrassa, Spain

Lausanne, Switzerland: The International Hockey Federation (FIH) is glad to announce that the city of Terrassa, Spain will host the upcoming Women’s  FIH Hockey Nations Cup from 3 to 9 June 2024. Terrassa is a renowned venue for international hockey that successfully hosted, amongst others, the 1992 Olympic hockey tournaments and the 2022 FIH Hockey Women’s World Cup. The matches will be played at the Martí Colomer Stadium, which is home to Spanish hockey club Linia 22.

The impressive line-up of participating teams includes Spain, Chile, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea and New Zealand!

“We are very pleased to be able to host the FIH Hockey Nations Cup for the second year in a row. At the Royal Spanish Federation, we are committed to our players and believe that playing at home is very special for them and for all the fans. We believe that major sporting events are key to our growth, and after a great World Cup in Terrassa in 2022, the Estadi Martí Colomer will take over from the Estadi Olímpic. This stadium has already experienced a great Final Four and the Centennial Tournament in 2023 and we believe that the Nations Cup will be a great success for our sport, our players and the city of Terrassa”, Royal Spanish Hockey Federation Santiago Deó stated.

FIH President Tayyab Ikram said: “After the success of the 2022 FIH Hockey Women’s World Cup, it’s fantastic to go back to Terrassa for the second edition of the FIH Hockey Nations Cup, the inaugural edition of which was also magnificently hosted in Spain, in Valencia at the time. There is a lot at stake for the teams with, in particular, a qualification to the FIH Hockey Pro League for the winners! On behalf of FIH, I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Royal Spanish Hockey Federation as well as the local authorities of Terrassa for all their efforts to make this event another memorable one for all involved, athletes and fans in particular.”

The 2024 Men’s FIH Hockey Nations Cup will be staged in Gniezno, Poland (31 May to 9 June 2024).

The winners, women and men, of the 2024 FIH Hockey Nations Cup will join the 2024-25 FIH Hockey Pro League season.

The FIH Hockey Nations Cup was launched in 2021 with the aim of offering a top-level competition to the best-ranked teams not participating in the FIH Hockey Pro League and giving the winning team the option to be promoted to the FIH Hockey Pro League the next season, precisely. India (women) and South Africa (men) won the first edition of the FIH Hockey Nations Cup in 2022..
