FIH Men's and Women's World Ranking
After a long period of testing, a new World Ranking model took effect from January 1, 2020 after approval by the FIH Executive Board.
Moving away from the previous tournament based ranking system, this new match based system involves an exchange of points between the 2 teams competing in each match played. The number of points exchanged depends on the result of the match, the relative ranking of the teams and the importance of the match.
More details about the formula used in the algorithm, weightings of matches and other factors can be found together with a Frequently Asked Questions document .
