FIH WORLD SERIES Round 1 2018 IN VANUATU

This event will use the Hockey 5s format and entries will be called for shortly now that the venue has been confirmed. It is likely to be held in mid-September 2017.

Vanuatu successfully hosted the Youth Olympic Games Qualifier in 2014 which was their first ever hockey tournament at international level. VHF has a 3/4 artificial surface at Wan Smolbag Centre in Port Vila. 

Vanuatu is one of the younger member of Oceania Hockey Federation but has had significant growth in participation numbers and programmes as a result of the partnership with Oceania Hockey Federation, FIH, Australian Hockey Federation and the Australian Government through their Pacific Sport Partnership programme.

Rio Olympians Jane Claxton and Rachael Lynch visited Vanuatu a year ago and inspired women of all ages both in Port Vila and out in the north eastern villages to 'Give Hockey a Go'. This connection was re-established at Oceania Cup in Sydney where Jane and Rachael organised an exchange of equipment, clothing and mouthguards.
