Despite over one million people visiting this venue throughout the year, the evening of 5 February will be reserved exclusively for this special occasion. There, the winners of 2017's men's and women's Player, Goalkeeper, Rising Star, Coach and Umpire of the Year awards will be revealed.
The venue itself fits perfectly with the occasion. Distinctly internationally and inspiring, it reflects values embodied by the superstars of hockey who will be recognised at this annual awards ceremony.
Speaking about this announcement, FIH Interim CEO Delf Ness said: "stilwerk was founded on principles that embrace the best quality from across the world. This fits perfectly with the Hockey Stars Awards which celebrate those who have been the best performers in our events across the planet over the past year. Knowing the venue well, I'm certain they will put on a fantastic stage to showcase our sport's global stars. All those attending will enjoy a memorable evening in this cultured venue."
Owner of stilwerk, Alexander Garbe, added: "As a hockey player myself I am honoured to host this prestigious event in stilwerk. We have built a truly international collection of talent and creativity within the centre therefore we believe this aligns perfectly with the attributes that make all of the awards winners the best in the world. We are working closely with FIH to put on a truly fantastic show fitting for the top hockey players, goalkeepers, coaches and umpires in the world and look forward to hosting them in stilwerk next week."
Fans looking to catch a glimpse and perhaps an autograph from some of the world's top hockey stars should arrive at the venue around 19:00 to see the guests arriving. The ceremony will conclude around 21:30.
