July 1st, 2004. Club Tropicana starts off as a small one-day fieldhockey tournament with 16 participating teams. In 2018, Club Tropicana will be back with its 9th edition. Over the past years, Club Tropicana became a popular and highly anticipated two-day hockey festival hosting more than 90 teams comprising almost 1,200 players and welcoming another 1,800 additional visitors. This could not have been possible without the support of our loyal partners during the previous editions. First of all we would like to thank you once again for supporting us in the past and we hope we can work together again in 2018!
It goes without saying that field hockey is gaining popularity amongst a wider audience in Belgium. The qualification of our national men’s team for the Olympic Games in Beijing, London and Rio is, of course, key in this evolution. Winning the silver medal at the Olympics in Rio and recently at the EuroChampionships in Amsterdam gave the sport again an extra boost.
Nowadays, hockey is becoming a very popular team sport as reflected by an increasing number of hockey players and the growing media attention. Hence, hockey is considered to be the fastest growing team sport within our country!
Club Tropicana welcomes players from all over the country and abroad, of all different ages. We are convinced that Club Tropicana is a unique and ideal concept to present your brand to the Belgian hockey world and associate your logo with our sport.
