The International Hockey Federation (FIH) confirmed India as the host country,[1] and announced New Delhi as the host city on February 4, 2011. The tournament dates were December 3 to December 11, 2011.[2] However, on September 6, 2011, the FIH announced that India would no longer host the tournament due to a governance issue,[3] and announced Auckland, New Zealand as the new host on September 13, 2011 with the same time schedule.[4] The tournament was held at North Harbour Hockey Stadium.

Host city change


For the 33rd edition of the Hockey Champions Trophy, India was elected to host the tournament by the FIH on February 4, 2011. But due to an ongoing governance issue with the Indian Hockey Federation, the FIH announced that India would no longer host the competition, instead; Auckland, New Zealand hosted the tournament. New Zealand businessman Owen Glenn was instrumental in gaining the hosting rights for New Zealand. He funded Hockey New Zealand to gain the hosting rights.

The tournament was expected to have a television audience of approximately 38 million people. It being the largest hockey event in New Zealand's history. Auckland's mayor Len Brown said: "this event should inject around $1 million of new money into New Zealand's economy. The teams and officials directly involved in the event should generate over 4,000 visitor nights alone."[6]
