2020 FIHPL Ticket Sign Up Men
After taking the hockey world by storm in 2019, the FIH Pro League will be returning next year.
Sign up HERE for the latest very news on how you can secure your tickets.

In the inaugural running of the league, London played host to a series of sell-out games - including the biggest crowd for a hockey match since the 2012 Olympics - when Great Britain's men and women made history by taking hockey to the Twickenham Stoop in front of nearly 12,000 people.

This ground-breaking global hockey competition returns in 2020, bringing together the world’s best men's and women's teams and renewing some fierce rivalries as nations battle it out ahead of Tokyo 2020.

Next year's tournament will see a change in the structuring of fixtures, with London playing host to 16 games (eight double-headers) over four big weekends in May and June 2020 (they will also play eight international double headers away from home too). Furthermore India will join the men's competition and there will be no Grand Final.

There will also be a chance to support our men and women on the #RoadToTokyo as part of #ThePride and give them the perfect send off in their last competitive fixtures before the Olympics. Sign up here to find out more information regarding tickets.

2019 OQ/2020 FIHPL Schedule

New season, new structure
Earlier this year the FIH outlined a refined structure for the 2020 and 2021 FIH Pro League campaigns following recommendations from competing nations to halve the amount of travel time.

The league will now see teams play each other home and away in alternate years. For example, in 2020 Great Britain will play a total of four matches against Argentina (two women's games and two men's) before travelling to South America for four away games in 2021. The new format is not dissimilar to the Six Nations in rugby union, but nations play each other twice each year instead of once.

Furthermore there will also no longer be a Grand Final, with both the men’s and women’s overall winners being determined by who finishes at the top of the table come the end of that season’s matches.


India’s men join the party
The men’s league is set to hot up even more next year as India’s men join the party.

Their addition to the tournament means that each of the world’s nine top ranked men’s teams – India are fifth, one place higher than Great Britain – will be taking part in the FIH Pro League in 2020.

And with the competition being so closely fought last time round, their inclusion will add even more excitement next year as they bring an attacking style of play and some incredibly passionate fans to the party.

Great Britain’s men will open their home campaign against India between 2-3 May in what is set to be a fantastic contest.

The world’s best are coming back to London
World class hockey will be returning to London once again this year as we host another 16 FIH Pro League games.

We were inspired by the thousands of members of #ThePride who turned out last year and gave our teams such fantastic support, including the biggest crowd this country has seen since the London 2012 Olympics when nearly 12,000 people descended on Harlequins’ Twickenham Stoop.

England Hockey is currently in discussions with Harlequins about one of the home FIH Pro League fixtures taking place at The Stoop, with other home games being played at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre

Our final double header against Germany on 13-14 June will also give #ThePride the chance to give the men’s and women’s teams the perfect send off to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, depending on whether they win their Olympic Qualifiers in November.
