INITIAL SQUAD LISTS FOR THE 2018 MASTERS WORLD CUP IN TERRASSA AND THE GRAND MASTERS WORLD CUP IN BARCELONA

Hockey New Zealand and the Masters Advisory Group are pleased to announce the initial squad lists for the 2018 Masters World Cup in Terrassa (27 July - 5 August) and the Grand Masters World Cup in Barcelona (20 - 30 June).

These squads will be where the final 16-18 players selected to travel will come from, which will be selected in January 2018. In some cases, the final team has been named and finalised.

“We would like to congratulate all players who have made themselves available for selection for our New Zealand Masters squads, and in particular to those listed in the initial squads,” Hockey NZ Competitions Manger Aidan O’Connor said.

“We are very excited about the capability of each squad – there have been some excellent players who unfortunately have not been selected which highlights the strength of each squad. 

“We have full confidence in our top quality coaches and managers to lead each programme at their respective World Cups in 2018.”

Some of the world’s best hockey teams will hit our shores this summer for the University of Waikato Men’s Four Nations in Tauranga and Hamilton.

The Vantage Black Sticks Men are set to host Olympic silver medallists Belgium (world ranking 3rd), India (6th) and Japan (16th) in a quad series from 17-28 January.

Split across two separate five-day series, Blake Park in Tauranga hosts the action from 17-21 January before teams head to Gallagher Hockey Centre in Hamilton from 24-28 January.

The Kiwis will be looking to start 2018 off with a bang as they begin their build-up for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April.

New Zealand last played Belgium and Japan at the Hockey World League Semi Finals in Johannesburg where they recorded a 2-0 defeat and 3-1 victory respectively.

The Black Sticks will also be looking for revenge against India who came away with a 4-0 win in their last clash at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup earlier this year.

For those who can’t be there in person, ALL games will be streamed live on the Vantage Black Sticks Facebook page (facebook.com/nzblacksticks) and replays will then be available on demand at the conclusion of the live broadcast.

Fans who like the Vantage Black Sticks Facebook page will be notified through the mobile app or website as soon as the broadcast goes live.
