Next FIH Congress to be held on 4-5 November 2022

October 29, 2021

Lausanne, Switzerland: Meeting virtually today, the Executive Board (EB) of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) confirmed the dates of the 2022 FIH Congress which will take place – virtually, as already decided - on 4-5 November next year.

Looking back at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the EB members extended again their utmost gratitude to the IOC as well as the Japanese authorities and organisers for staging outstanding Olympics, despite the unprecedented challenges caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and stressed how successful this Olympiad had been for hockey.

Regarding the upcoming FIH events, a detailed report was given to the EB about the preparations for the FIH Odisha Hockey Men’s Junior World Cup Bhubaneswar 2021 and the FIH Hockey Women’s Junior World Cup South Africa 2021 which will start on 24 November and 5 December respectively.  

Furthermore, the EB welcomed that FIH, based on its current status in terms of gender equality within the Olympic movement, had recently been approached by the University of Lausanne to be involved in an extensive piece of research regarding women’s participation in decision-making in sport, and confirmed FIH’s willingness to join this project.

The last EB meeting of this year will take place on 8 December.
