The three-day event is being held at the English FA’s National Training Centre at St George’s Park between 15-17 May. Ireland will take on Team GB and the USA as they complete their preperation for the Tokyo Olympics.

Commenting ahead of the tournament, Anthony Eddy said: “We are really looking forward to getting back to international competition and actually play some matches.

“This tournament provides a great opportunity to build towards the summer ahead and it is great preparation for the Men’s team leading into Monaco and the Olympic Repechage Tournament in June. Both our Men’s and Women’s teams will be exposed to some quality opposition throughout the tournament and the competition should be intense.

“We are very grateful for the opportunity and thankful for all the work that has taken place behind the scenes to allow us to participate in the tournament.”
