Wembley Super Sixes lineup announced

[img_assist|nid=3312|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=216|height=144]The line-up is complete for hockey’s Maxifuel Super Sixes Finals, which take place at London’s Wembley Arena on Sunday 29 January.  Following Saturday’s semi finals, Reading and Leicester’s women’s teams have qualified for their final, joining the men’s teams of East Grinstead, Bowdon, Beeston and Reading at hockey’s showpiece indoor event.

You could win a VIP ticket for two to the finals with our Yakult competition.

Last season’s runners-up Reading beat their 2011 conquerors and defending Champions Bowdon Hightown 3-2 in Loughborough on Saturday evening and they will be joined in the women’s final by Leicester, the 2010 Champions, who won a thrilling match with Sutton Coldfield 7-3.

 The Maxifuel Super Sixes Finals is hockey’s thrilling, skilful six-a-side indoor showpiece event where goals are guaranteed in action-packed, lightning-quick 20 minute halves.  It is hockey’s biggest domestic event this side of the 2012 Olympic Games and will see Great Britain’s Olympic hockey stars playing for their club sides to win the national title and the right to represent England in Europe’s premier club competition.

 As well as the women’s final, Wembley Arena will play host to the men’s semi finals and the final, plus international player autograph signings and top family entertainment.
