The Gibraltar Hockey Association (GHA) was founded in 1948 although hockey was being played prior to this under the British military forces based in Gibraltar. It was formed as the Civilian Hockey Association and a year later changed its name to The Gibraltar Hockey Association.
This Association of approximately 300 hockey players (both men and women) amongst a population of 30,000 inhabitants has certainly made its mark in International Hockey. Gibraltar Hockey has a great tradition in European Hockey, becoming members in 1969 and participating in the European Club Championship qualifiers that same year.
The Gibraltar Hockey Association is also proud to have and had have a number of FIH International Umpires, Technical Directors, Umpire's Managers and Judges. One of our greatest achievements in this area was to have our most prestigious Umpire nominated for the Olympic Games in London (2012), Rio (2016) and being awarded Umpire of the Year in 2015.
