Blue Hockey Pitches To Debut At London 2012

The London 2012 Olympic Hockey competition will see the event being played on blue pitches - the first Olympic or world event to be played on a different coloured synthetic turf to the traditional green.

The colour change is designed to improve viewing for players, officials, spectators and broadcasters alike.

The pitch run-off areas will be pink, providing a striking difference to the playing area.

The Hockey Centre will be the only fully outdoor venue on the Olympic Park and plays host to the Men’s and Women’s tournaments in 2012.

The pitches will be installed in spring 2012 and test events run 2-6 May 2012.

We wonder what the Simian Hockey sticks are going to look like against the pink and blue?
