by | Aug 16, 2021

The International Hockey Federation (FIH), South African Hockey Association (SAHA) and North West University (NWU) will be hosting the first Junior Hockey Women’s World Cup on African soil.

 

The event will take place in Potchefstroom from 5-16 December at the North West University’s Astro complex. Following Covid-19 restrictions, the event will be hosted in a strict bio-bubble to ensure the safety of all players and officials.

The SA u/21 women’s side will be representing the country as the host nation along with 15 other international teams.

Several qualification processes are still taking place, with the final teams participating in the tournament being announced by the International Hockey Federation in September 2021.
