The Vantage Black Sticks Men are set to host Olympic silver medallists Belgium (world ranking 3rd), India (6th) and Japan (16th) in a quad series from 17-28 January in Tauranga and Hamilton.

The Kiwis will be looking to start 2018 off with a bang as they begin their build-up for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April.

Split across two separate five-day series, Blake Park in Tauranga hosts the action from 17-21 January before teams head to Gallagher Hockey Centre in Hamilton from 24-28 January.

New Zealand last played Belgium, coached by Kiwi Shane McLeod, and Japan at the Hockey World League Semi Finals in Johannesburg where they recorded a 2-0 defeat and 3-1 victory respectively.

As a world-class spectator event, the Four Nations provides an exciting opportunity for the hockey community and all those who have yet to experience this truly international sport, to get along and enjoy some of the world’s top teams in action.”
