Harrow Sports Announces New Post-Collegiate Field Hockey Tournament

Feb. 18, 2013, 10:58 a.m. (ET)

Denver, Colo. – Harrow Sports has announced they will host Harrow Cup, a new post-collegiate field hockey tournament to provide adult players a way to fill the void of competitive field hockey. Eight teams are expected to compete in the inaugural tournament. 

"Offering post-collegiate players an opportunity to compete in an event of this magnitude will extend their hockey playing careers," said University of Maryland Head Field Hockey Coach, Missy Meharg. Too frequently NCAA players simply stop playing after college due to the lack of a structured post-college playing environment. My hope is that the Harrow Cup tournament will underscore the need for a semi-professional competitive league in the United States.”

With a $10,000 winner takes all cash prize, the Harrow Cup will be the highest paying field hockey tournament in America. Uniforms and equipment will be provided by Harrow Sports, free of charge. Registration will be open from February 15 until March 1. Players will be assigned to teams via Harrow Cup Draft on March 15.

“As a constant supporter of growing the game at all levels, Harrow is thrilled to be leading the charge in post-collegiate play. We believe this is currently the most under-served market in hockey and look forward to extending the careers of so many talented athletes.” said Alli Tanner, Harrow Field Hockey Brand Manager.  

The event is June 8-9 2013 at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
