Scotland’s senior men’s squad will be in Amsterdam this weekend to play two test matches against the Netherlands ahead of the World League semi-finals in London.

The Blue Sticks will take to the pitch on 27 May and 28 May, both played at 6:15pm (UK time) at the Wagener Stadion.

It’s all part of preparations for the World League semi-finals where Scotland men will play in London at the Olympic 2012 legacy venue Lee Valley, and will face the Netherlands at the tournament.

Scotland are in Pool B with India, the Netherlands, Pakistan, and Canada, while Pool A has Argentina, Korea, England, China, and Malaysia drawn together.

Scotland’s opening match will see them face India on June 15 2017 at 14:00.

Scotland Head Coach Derek Forsyth said, “We’re really looking forward to the games and they should be a great challenge for us. We're building up for the World League semi-finals, and these are our first matches since World League 2. The boys are looking forward to playing one of the best teams in the world.”
