For the first time in the history of Australian hockey, participants, the media and hockey fans can explore every international match ever played by the country’s iconic Hockeyroos and Kookaburras and track the international careers of their hockey heroes.
The ground breaking Hockey Australia History Project is the result of more than five years’ painstaking work by former Australian coach Richard Aggiss and historian John Sanders, who are now looking for feedback from the hockey community.
Since 2008, with the support of individuals and institutions from across the country and beyond, the pair has put on record the result of every official match ever played by the Hockeyroos and the Kookaburras and the names of every athlete to have had the privilege of pulling on the green and gold of Australia.
