London unsuccessfully bid to stage the 2014 World Cup but rebounded to host an event that will also serve as a qualifier for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
“We’re thrilled to have been named as the host of the EuroHockey Championships 2015, for women and men," said Philip Kimberley, chairman of the England Hockey Board.
"The bid team has done an exceptional job in preparing an outstanding bid and I offer my wholehearted congratulations.
"This success once again demonstrates our commitment to creating a lasting legacy for people to continue to enjoy playing, watching and volunteering in hockey in this country.”
Hockey proved one of the hottest tickets at the London 2012 Olympics, where Great Britain's women are considered serious gold medal prospects after a succession of podium performances.
Over 600,000 spectators will attend fixtures during the Games and the EHB are determined to capitalise on that interest, having spurned the opportunity to maximise Great Britain's famous men's gold at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.
"The England Hockey Board has been honest in its promise of a legacy to hockey, not only today with this announcement, but also when they hosted the EuroHockey Championships in 2007 in Manchester at hockey’s legacy venue from the 2002 Commonwealth Games," said Marijke Fleuren, president of the European Hockey Federation.
"We are delighted to be going back once again to another wonderful hockey legacy venue, this time the Lee Valley Hockey Centre."
