Following the conclusion of the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Veracruz, Mexico, the Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF) can announce the teams qualified for the 2015 Pan American Games, to be held in Toronto, Canada, in July 2015.
In accordance with the Qualification Procedure published in January 2013, eight teams qualified for the men’s competition and eight teams qualified for the women’s competition.
The Teams that qualified for the men’s competition are:
First reserve for the men’s competition is Uruguay (8th at the 2013 Pan American Cup in Brampton)
The Teams that qualified for the women’s competition are:
First reserve for the women’s competition is Trinidad & Tobago (7th at the 2013 Pan American Cup in Mendoza)
The hockey competitions of the 2015 Pan American Games will be played on the new pitches opened earlier this year in University of Toronto, an excellent location at the core of downtown Toronto.
In both competitions, the winners will earn an automatic berth for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It should be noted that only the winners can qualify thought the Pan American Games: if a winner also qualifies for the Olympic Games through the World League, the runner up in the Pan American Games do not inherit the qualification berth.
PAHF is now finalizing the list of Technical Officials appointed for the 2015 Pan American Games. They will be announced on December 11.
