2018 was a big year for hockey. In the summer, London hosted the Women’s Hockey World Cup – with the Netherlands lifting the trophy – and the men’s World Cup in India rounded off the year, with Belgium prevailing.
Hockey – a sport on the up
Over 80,000 tickets were sold for the women’s event in London, with England’s games all selling out. A study revealed the event helped push UK women’s sport attendances past the half-a-million barrier in 2018, and sports marketing agency Two Circles, which compiled the study, says there has been a 38% average yearly growth since 2013.
Two Circles said the growth in women’s sport had been “driven by a huge increase in media coverage and awareness of women’s sport; the introduction of new, professionally-organised events across football, hockey, netball and rugby union and the success of hosting the 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup”.
