Urban Street Hockey Tour
After the success of last year edition, the Royal Belgian Hockey Association decided to bring hockey to the inner city of Antwerp as well. This fast and challenging hockeyform was designed to increase awareness of the sport through an innovative and trendy way. Street Hockey is played in a special designed cage where the boardings also can be used during play. The high intensity and speed of these “3-on-3” games create spectacular moments with lots of tricks and skills.
In the run up to the Belfius EuroHockey Championships a hockeyfield will pop up around different locations in Antwerp on every Saturday during June and July. This to introduce the sport of hockey to “non-hockeyfans”. Kids can join the multiple workshops and mini-games from certified hockeycoaches for free. The icing on the cake comes in form of numerous Red Lions and Red Panthers appearances!
