For international tournaments and domestic league fixtures, demand for Field Hockey tickets can be high, but Ticketbis fills the gap with tickets for all the major competitions, including the Hockey World Cup (for both mens and womens teams) and the Olympic Games. The sort of people who follow hockey are a notoriously well-mannered bunch with class and refinement, but when the game gets underway, all non-partisanship is set aside, the Dutch fans can be particularly vociferous when supporting the guys or girls in Orange.

Field Hockey stats and information
For those who are maybe new to Field Hockey, the format is similar to many other team ball games with 11 players on each side and rolling subs. It is not unusual for a special set of players to be brought on to defend set pieces in play. In 2014 the rules of the game were changed, scrapping the old system of two halves of 35 minutes into four quarters which each last 15 minutes. This innovation proved popular with the fans. Even though it meant ten minutes less action per game, it has had the effect of livening up the game play with fewer lulls in the proceedings. One thing which does stand out about the game is that it is always a foul if the ball strikes an outfield player on his or her shoe.
At the Olympic Games in 2016 a curious milestone was achieved, when the first married couple each won a gold medal in the same event. What makes this even more remarkable is that the couple in question are the same-sex athletes Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh who won gold for Great Britain alongside Sam Quek and their team mates. Mens and womens hockey are becoming more and more popular, not just for spectators but also people who are looking to take up a new physical hobby.
