Hockey5s is played on a smaller pitch than the 11-a-side format, which enables to bring hockey to people in new and unexpected venues, sometimes even at the heart of the cities. Precisely, FIH Hockey5s Lausanne 2022 will be staged on the Place de la Navigation, an iconic location near the Lac Léman bordering the Olympic Capital. This large concourse, separated from the road by a basin marking the former lakeshore, was constructed in 1995. Where once industry and commerce reigned is now a place of leisure.
