Watch Africa’s Hockey Stars Pave Their Way To The Olympics

Can our local teams earn their place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics? And will South Africa’s women’s team claim their seventh title?

The best African hockey nations are coming together at Stellenbosch University for the AFCON African Road to Tokyo hockey tournament from 12 – 18 August 2019. Men’s and women’s teams will battle it out to represent their countries at the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.

WHO’S PLAYING?
There’ll be eight men's teams from South Africa, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The women’s tournament will consist of seven teams, with all but Egypt from the men’s tournament participating.

SA men’s Coach, Garreth Ewing and SA Women’s coach, Rob van Ginkel, have been working hard assembling the best national squads possible.
