What You Need to Know:

As the reigning Olympic, World, FIH Hockey Pro League and European champions, The Netherlands are unquestionably the dominant force in world hockey. The recent departure of Head Coach Alyson Annan, herself a double Olympic gold medalist and two-time FIH Player of the Year, will almost certainly trigger some changes. However, being blessed with some of the world’s greatest athletes such as attacking stars Lidewij Welten and Frederique Matla, the Dutch remain the team to beat in Season 3. They will have to defend their title without legendary captain Eva de Goede, who looks likely to be out of action for some time after sustaining a serious knee injury.
