National Sports Campus
Hockey Ireland uses a purpose-built facility at the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown which was built in the wake of the Irish women’s 2018 World Cup silver medal courtesy of the generous support of Sport Ireland and the Irish government.
The new pitch was constructed by Sport Ireland with day-to-day management of the facility the responsibility of the Sport Ireland National Sports Campus operations company.
The Sport Ireland Hockey pitch is a high spec pitch using the Polytan Polygras Toyko GT surface, which is the same surface that was used at the 2020 (now 2021) Tokyo Olympic Games and will be used at the 2022 World Cup.
This hockey pitch facility is now home to the Ireland hockey teams to prepare for international games and events and this elite-level facility is also available to the public to fulfil their own requirements.
