14 February 2012

Inverleith will host the EuroHockey Indoor Club Champions Trophy (M) in Edinburgh from 17-19 February 2012, when they will make their first appearance in the competition. Following Grove Menzieshill's demotion from the Club Champions Cup last season, the capital outfit compete in the Trophy tournament and will play Lille MHC (FRA), Slagelse HC (DEN) and Racing Club de Bruxelles (BEL) in Pool B. In Pool A, WKS Grunwald Poznan (POL), HC Kolos-Sekvoya Vinnitsa (UKR), HC 1972 Rakovnik (CZE) and AD Lousada (POR) will also battle it out for a place in the semi-finals.
WKS Grunwald will be aiming to return to the Club Champions Cup following their relegation last year, whilst Lille MHC could pose a large threat again as they narrowly missed out on promotion in the Trophy in the 2011 season.
The tournament will be played at Edinburgh's Napier University at Sighthill Campus and 300 seats will be made available for spectators at the venue on each day of the competition.
