The German men’s hockey team ( ranked 6th in the world) are all set to welcome the Austrian men’s hockey team ( ranked 20th in the world ) in Mönchengladbach on 2nd and 3rd November 2019 in what is the final opportunity for teams to qualify for the Olympics.
However, after the resignation of their national coach Stefan Kermas, the German men are currently uncertain as to who will replace Kermas and lead them to the Olympic qualifier.
The sports management of the Germany Hockey Federation is currently finding a coach who can prepare the team for the qualifiers.
Speaking about being drawn against Austria, Germany men’s hockey team Captain Mats Grambusch has rated the draw of the opponent as positive.
“We know Austria much better than Pakistan or Russia, because almost all the players are from Germany or other European leagues. Their style of play is easier to analyse because it is also European. Therefore, I think that it is a good chance for us (to win). “
The German men’s hockey team went down against the Austrians in the 2018 Indoor Hockey World Cup last year in Berlin, but Mats said it that result does not matter for him.
Ticket Information for the Germany vs Austria Olympic Qualifier match will be released soon via the association’s social media channels.
