What You Need to Know:
Argentina are the reigning FIH Hockey Pro League champions thanks to their title success in 2021-22 edition, denying The Netherlands a third successive win in the competition by going the duration of the season without losing in regulation time. The matches between Las Leonas and the Oranje both ended in draws, with the Dutch taking the available bonus points with success in the respective shootouts. It was not enough to deny Argentina their first FIH Hockey Pro League title, although the Dutch exacted revenge a month later when they defeated Argentina in the final of the FIH Hockey Women's World Cup Spain & Netherlands 2023. Under the guidance of head coach Fernando Ferrara and blessed with some outrageously gifted players in the shape of teenage defender Valentina Raposo, penalty corner ace Agustina Gorzelany and the Granatto sisters, Victoria and Maria, Argentina have firmly established themselves as the frontrunners to end the Dutch dominance.
