Having the Investec World League Semi Final in London will be fantastic for players and spectators alike. The support during the Olympics was incredible and we are delighted to have gained a lot of new fans who will be able to come and watch us in action again. Home support can make all the difference to our performances and we can’t wait recreate the Riverbank atmosphere all over again. Hosting this tournament really shows the legacy of London 2012 starting to take shape for our sport.
