|Reminder to buy your tickets!|
Tickets for KO16 in Rotterdam (6.-9. April 2012) are now available for purchase via our online ticket sales site.
The event will witness sixteen of Europe’s best club teams reduced to the four Semi Finalists over four days of intense competition.
The opening match on Friday morning will see Beeston HC (ENG) facing last year’s silver medallists Club de Campo from Madrid (ESP). That game is followed by an exciting meeting between double EHL champions UHC Hamburg (GER) against Spain’s Real Club de Polo de Barcelona. In the afternoon, Dutch champions Amsterdam H&BC will do battle with Dinamo Kazan of Russia. The day’s entertainment will be completed by the encounter between Teun de Nooijer’s HC Bloemendaal (NED) and Spanish champions Atletic Terrassa, the home club of Spanish international striker Santi Freixa.
Saturday morning begins with East Grinstead facing French Champions CA Montrouge, a team that have reached the Knock-Out phase for the very first time. With experienced international players such as Barry Middleton, Glenn Kirkham and Ashley Jackson amongst their ranks East Grinstead are the big favourites to march into KO8. Belgian champions KHC Dragons – a team which defeated Jeroen Hertzberger’s H.C. Rotterdam 5-4 to win Pool E at Round 1.2 – take on Dinamo Elektrostal from Russia.
The encounter between German league runners up Uhlenhorst Mülheim and the hosts H.C. Rotterdam (NED) is expected to be a thrilling contest that will surely be played in front of a sell-out crowd. The final match of the KO16 phase will be played between German Champions Club an der Alster and Reading HC (ENG), who claimed the Bronze medal in last year’s Euro Hockey League competition. Reading is the home club of Great Britain internationals Richard and Simon Mantell, Jonty Clarke, Ian MacKay and goalkeeper Nick Brothers.
The Quarter Finals will be played on Sunday and Monday.
Online tickets will not only be cheaper than at the venue box office but will also guarantee entry for what will surely be a sell-out. We strongly recommend purchasing on advance to guarantee your entry into this stunning event.
The EHL ticketing website is available in six different languages: English, Dutch, German, Spanish, French and Italian.
