World hockey awards cancelled until 2022

A hockey year blighted by the coronavirus pandemic has seen the cancellation of world hockey’s annual Hockey Stars Awards.

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) cancelled its flagship awards last month but will continue to stage the awards from 2022.

FIH chief executive Thierry Weil said: “Due to the high number of international matches which could not be played this year because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no FIH Stars Awards this time.

“But we of course intend to renew with these awards in the future, once the situation will enable international hockey to be played on a regular basis again.”

The next FIH Pro League matches are set to played when Spain take on Belgium at home in early February.

The FIH Congress is scheduled for New Delhi in May.
