Vitality Women's Hockey World Cup 2018
Situation: Lee Valley in London was announced as hosts of the Vitality Hockey Women's World Cup, taking place within the Olympic Park at Stratford. For this one-off prestigious event, Lee Valley required high quality Hockey Goals, Shelters and Equipment.Solution: Due to our strong relationship with England Hockey which has spanned over the last 20 years, we were asked to supply Hockey Goals, Shelters and Equipment to The Vitality Hockey Women's World Cup at Lee Valley. Our assembly team worked hard to install and assemble our Hockey Goals at Lee Valley, to the correct specifications, ready for the tournament to start on the 21st July. We also supplied our Training Goals and Hockey Rebound Boards to the Fan Central at the Olympic Park – which was a hub for aspiring Hockey Players to have fun and practise their skills!
Outcome: The Hockey World Cup at Lee Valley was a massive success, with 126 goals being scored in our Harrod Sport Hockey Goals throughout the whole tournament. The Netherlands nicknamed the "Hockey Orange" were the tournament winners for the 8th time in a row, winning 6-0 against underdogs Ireland, who reached their first ever World Cup Final. With more than 120,000 people spectating throughout the whole tournament over 36 games, the Hockey World Cup will be remembered as a spectacular tournament in years to come – and Harrod Sport are proud to have been a part of it.
