Returning to the site where Great Britain's Women's team won Bronze at London 2012, Fan Central  is a hub open to everyone, so you can maximise your excitement for the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup before, during and after the matches.

Whether you have a ticket or not to watch the live action, everyone is invited to join us on the Park - a must visit destination for anyone looking for a great day out and sharing in the atmosphere of a world cup in London - entry is free.

Expect a Toshiba big screen, meet and greet with players, live music, entertainment and an exciting, diverse street food offering from popular street food providers KERB, catering for all dietary requirements.

There will also be opportunities to pick up a stick and play Hockey, with a variety of challengers available. Then you can sharpen your knowledge and see Hockey through the ages at The Hockey Museum. A whole host of top international brands will be present so you can browse the latest ranges of sticks, clothing and equipment too.

You can find Fan Central in the north of the Park, less than 5 minutes' walk away from the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre if you have tickets for match. If you're coming just to soak up the atmosphere, the walk from nearby stations and many attractions across the Park make for the perfect day out this summer.

Please note that Fan Central will not be open on Monday 23 August and Friday 3 August, as there are no matches scheduled on these two dates.
