Breathtaking speed and dazzling hockey skills will be on the menu at the Maxifuel Super Sixes Finals, set to take place at Wembley Arena. The UK’s top men's and women's hockey teams, including members of the Olympic bronze medal winning side, will compete at this end-of-season showdown, expected to attract a sell-out crowd of 7,000 spectators.

Jonathan Cockcroft, Commercial and Membership Director from England Hockey Board, says: “The Maxifuel Super Sixes Finals event is the pinnacle of hockey’s indoor game and what better way to showcase our British Olympians. For many families it’s the affordability factor that deters them from live sporting events, but we have specifically designed these indoor championships to be a fun, inexpensive day out for all ages.”

Lightning quick 20 minute halves offer a snapshot of the adrenaline filled game of hockey. “For many, it will be the first time that they have witnessed elite sport stars in a live arena. With the London Olympics inspiring 50,000 people to pick up a stick and give it a go, now is your chance to become part of the growing Hockey Nation. The Finals promise to be a real treat of non-stop action as the country’s best hockey players battle it out for the Championship trophy,” continues Cockcroft.

Last year saw triumphant wins from East Grinstead, crowned men’s champions, and Leicester Ladies, who stormed to victory in the women’s final.
