EuroHockey Championships to be covered by BBC in host nation

UK public-service broadcaster the BBC has secured rights for the 2015 EuroHockey Championships.

The biennial national team event will be staged at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from August 21-30.

England’s men’s and women’s teams will take part alongside Scotland women, with all matches played by the UK home nations available through the BBC’s red button interactive television service, the BBC Sport website and its companion smartphone app.

If England or Scotland qualify for the final in their respective tournaments the games will be shown live on television via BBC Two.

England’s women were beaten by Germany in a penalty shootout at the 2013 EuroHockey final in Belgium.
