National Hockey Center

The current home and headquarters of the Singapore Hockey Federation, the National Hockey Center is the proposed venue for the Hockey competition events of the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010.

The Singapore Hockey Federation uses the facility for its national and youth development hockey squad training. One of the earliest uses of the National Hockey Center as a hockey competition venue was during the 1993 South East Asian Games. Since then, the facility has also been used extensively by the Singapore Hockey League.

Apart from the Singapore Hockey League, the National Hockey Center has played host to the first Women’s Asian Hockey Federation Cup (1997), the Under-16 Asian Hockey Federation Cup (2000). The Singapore International Hockey Challenge (2007) was also staged in the facility, and featured national men’s and women’s hockey teams from India, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan and Singapore.

The National Hockey Center is situated around 20 minutes away by shuttle bus from the Youth Olympic Village and most IOC Family hotels. It is well connected to the public transportation network, and is walking distance from the Redhill MRT train station and public bus stops.
