Hockey One – Australia’s brand new premier field hockey domestic competition, contested by seven states and territories has begun today.
This brand new league format promises to deliver fans some tough competition and thrilling entertainment. Hockey One has replaced the former Australian Hockey League (AHL).
The aim of the league is to reinvigorate the sport and gain a new generation of fans.
Let’s check out all fan reactions from “Day One” of the “Hockey One” league.
LaTrobe Sports Coaching & Development Lecturer Alex Roberts tweeted that he loved the double headers, but was not happy with the TV Coverage….🤪🤪
Round 1 of @H1League – loving the double headers, not so much loving the tv coverage. No point showing us the PC hit if we can’t see the goal! Can’t wait to watch live in Melb next week #HockeyOne #HockeyClubMelbourne #HCMelbourne pic.twitter.com/fn5YFbXYEC

Some fans did not like the uniforms though….🧐🧐
Can't decide what's worse. The female commentator or the uniform colours.
