Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games field hockey schedules set

Community Mar 02, 2015 York Guardian

The detailed field hockey schedule for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games has been released.

The games will be played at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus.

The grass fields will be transformed into two world-class field hockey pitches, which will be Ontario’s first international-calibre field hockey venue and will double the number of fields available for the sport in the Greater Toronto Area.

Field Hockey Canada expects the facility to be the highest quality two-turf pitches in Canada.

The fields will be water-based, which are the standard required for the International Hockey Federation for all international competitions. Water-based turf fields are irrigated before, during and after games in accordance with international sport federation regulations.

The wetted-down turf reduces friction on the ball and creates an ideal field of play.

The Canadian women’s team plays preliminary round matches on Monday, July 13, against the Dominican Republic, Wednesday, July 15, against Argentina and Friday, July 17 against Mexico. All games are at 7 p.m.

The women’s quarterfinals start on Monday, July 20, with the semifinals on Wednesday, July 22 and the finals on Friday, July 24.

In men’s preliminary action, Canada takes on Brazil on Tuesday, July 14, Chile on Thursday, July 16, and Mexico on Saturday, July 18. All games start at 7 p.m.

Quarterfinals start on Tuesday, July 21. Semifinals on Thursday, July 23 and the finals on Saturday, July 25.
