DAVID ALIAGA/ Hi there again!! Since last Wednesday until next June 21st I will be covering the FIH World League Semi-Final 2015 held in Valencia. Ten of the best women field hockey teams’ will be fighting to reach the Final and to go to Rio 2016, as this tournament is also a Qualifier Round for the next Olympic Games. First thing I was impressed by was about the facilities of the Valencia Hockey Stadium. The blue hockey field has been recently changed becoming the only pitch with last generation artificial turf, the same as the Hockey competition will count with in the Olympic Games in Rio 2016. Valencia is becoming step by step a capital of field hockey where National Teams come to do their stages and preparation games. The organization is pretty good and everything related with press and photographer facilities they it’s just fantastic!
