The Hockeyroos and Kookaburras will play feature international matches in Sydney and Perth next year after the cities were announced to host Australia’s home double headers in the FIH Pro League 2020.
Tickets to all home matches are on sale now through Ticketek.
Sydney will play host to a blockbuster Australia Day weekend of fixtures against fellow world hockey powerhouse Belgium on 25/26 January.
This will be followed by back-to-back double headers at the Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre against Great Britain, who are the current Olympic women’s hockey goal medalists.
Attention then turns to Perth where the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos will take on Argentina on 6/7 March before playing their final matches of the global competition against cross Tasman rivals New Zealand on 16/17 May.
Sydney and Perth both hosted home matches in the inaugural season of the Pro League.
“These home matches in Sydney and Perth provide a great opportunity for not only the hockey community but the Australian sporting public to see our elite national teams in action,” said Hockey Australia CEO Matt Favier.
