The International Hockey Federation’s establishment of a new global international team-sport league – the Hockey Pro League


Charles Russell Speechlys has advised The International Hockey Federation (FIH) on the establishment of a new global international team-sport league – the Hockey Pro League.

The new league, which is due to launch in January 2019, will see the nine best men’s and women’s teams from around the world play each other both at home and away every year, across a total of 144 one-off matches. The fixtures will take place in national stadiums, week in, week out, from January to June.

We advised the FIH on the contractual arrangements necessary to establish the new Home and Away League from 2019-2022.
