LAUSANNE, Switzerland - The International Hockey Federation (FIH) and the participating National Associations are glad to announce that the match schedule of the third season of the FIH Hockey Pro League is now confirmed. The global home-and-away league involving the best teams in the world will start with the reigning Women’s World Champions Netherlands welcoming their Belgian neighbors on October 6, 2021. It will finish on June 30, 2022, also with World Champions involved - the Men’s one, this time - with Belgium hosting Spain.
The schedule is planned to be spread over two years, from October 2021 to June 2022. Of course, it is fully in line with the recently approved 8-year global hockey calendar. This will, amongst others, enable a smoother planning for continental, national and club competitions.
The 2021-22 FIH Hockey Pro League match schedules are available here (Women’s) and here (Men’s).

Furthermore, considering that the second season of the FIH Hockey Pro League has been quite substantially disrupted by the global COVID-19 pandemic, FIH and the participating teams have agreed that the final rankings of the competition will be determined on the basis of percentage (points earned vs maximum number of possible points from matches played*). The current standings are available here.
On a bright note, with the opening of the trans-Tasman bubble on 19 April allowing quarantine free travel between Australia and New Zealand, Hockey New Zealand and Hockey Australia are actively working through options of playing their postponed FIH Hockey Pro League matches in Perth, Australia in late June.
*for example, a team who have played 10 matches by the end of the season will have a possible maximum of 30 points. If they have won 18 points, their percentage used for their final ranking will be 60%.
