ABOUT US

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. The Association had been a predominantly men’s hockey association up until the mid nineties when ladies hockey was introduced and a league competition was established.

Our Accomplishments

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 year.

 

There have been a number of highlights in Gibraltar’s European exploits such as winning the B and C Divisions at club level and playing in the A Division in no less than 4 occasions. The greatest achievement however was in 1978 when Gibraltar qualified for the European Nations Cup Finals held in Hanover. In more recent times, at National level, Gibraltar has enjoyed success at the Mediterranean Cups in 1999 and 2000, where Gibraltar won silver and bronze medal respectively. Over the many years, Gibraltar has hosted a good number of European Tournaments and can boast of a National Hockey Stadium with an excellent water based surface.

 

Aside from the seniors, Gibraltar has a strong junior base which will lead the way for the future of Gibraltar Hockey, with our 2019 U16 Boys National Squad placing 3rd at the EuroHockey5s U16 Championship II against countries the likes of Russia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, etc.

The Gibraltar Hockey Association is also proud to have had and still has a number of FIH International Umpires, Technical Director, Umpire Manager and Judges.  One of our greatest achievements in this area was to have our most prestigious umpire nominated to umpire in the Olympic Games in London (2012), Rio (2016) and being awarded Umpire of the Year in 2015.
