Euro Hockey League 2024 finals set for Amsterdam once again

Pinoké and AH&BC Amsterdam will host the ABN AMRO Euro Hockey League finals at the Wagener Stadium, with the much-anticipated draw set for this month.

The double hosting will take place from March 28 to April 1 in the culmination of European hockey’s biggest club showpiece. It will be the fourth year running that the EHL finals have been held in Amstelveen.

Pinoké brought the party-atmosphere last season with a vibrant volunteer team as large crowds enjoyed the world’s best club hockey competition.

Amsterdam, meanwhile, are frequent hosts of the elite tournament, most recently in 2022 when they saw their home club win the EHL Women’s title in glorious style.

EHL board member Marijke Fleuren said of this unique agreement: “There has been significant interest in hosting this year and this joint bid was most compelling.

“Having two such close neighbours working together will unlock every aspect of this famous stadium in Amstelveen and the potential for lively home crowds on each day of the EHL festival.”

In addition to the 20 matches which will take place in the main stadium, the Amsterdamse Bos and its pitches will also be the venue for the ABN AMRO EHL Hockey ID and ABN AMRO EHL U14 tournaments.

Seerp Gratama, Pinoké chairman, said: “Pinoké is proud to return as a host for the EHL finals, this year together with AH&BC and we look forward to a great hockey tournament in a superb atmosphere.”

The draw for the EHL Men and Women’s FINAL8 competitions will be made on Dec 13 in Amsterdam with the match schedule and tickets to be released on Dec 15.
