Bermuda wins bid to host 2024 PanAm Challenge

The Bermuda Hockey Federation have successfully won the bid to host the 2024 Women’s Pan American Challenge.

The tournament will serve as the qualifier for the 2027 Pan American Games, where the top two teams will advance. The competition is anticipated to take place at the National Sports Centre from September 20 to 28.

Having successfully hosted the qualifying tournament for the Central American and Caribbean Games in the spring of last year, the BHF have a strong framework to build from as they continue to support the Pan American Hockey Federation in hosting the tournament.

The BHF will be looking to partner with local vendors on island and are optimistic that the event will boost our island’s visibility, create economic opportunities, and provide an exciting event for locals and international visitors to appreciate a high performing standard of field hockey.

Most notably, the island will be able to support the national women’s team, who will be competing in the qualifiers.

The first Pan American Challenge Tournament was hosted in 2011 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the national women’s team made their first and only appearance in the challenge, placing fifth.

Improving their ranking by winning the CAC qualifiers last year, the team will be aiming to continue their development under coach Kovin Moodley.

The team look to achieve a place in the top four of the upcoming CAC Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
