Hockey to form women’s sport Super Sunday at 2022 Commonwealth Games

Hockey will form part of a ‘Super Sunday’ of women’s sport on the final day of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The women’s hockey final at the University of Birmingham – which will also feature the squash events – will be one of three major finals, which will also include T20 cricket and netball finals as part of 11 medal sessions on Aug 7.

Ama Agbeze, who captained England to netball gold on the Gold Coast in 2018, said: “It’s a great boost for female sport.


“It’s great that the schedule has been accommodating and to get it sorted this way. It’s highlighting women and it’s basically a whole day to celebrate women’s sport.”

Across the 11-day 2022 Games, there will be 283 medal events, with competition set to start on 28 July.

Ian Reid, chief executive officer for Birmingham 2022, said: “We’re really confident that we’ll get back, that we’ll have full stadiums.

“We’ll start selling tickets later in the summer and we’ll feel positive if at that point stadiums are starting to fill up in other events.”
