Poland, Spain to host FIH Hockey Nations Cup events in 2024

Poland and Spain will host the second edition of the FIH Nations Cup in 2024, the winners joining the 2024-25 FIH Hockey Pro League season.

Gniezno, Poland will host the men’s event which will see Korea, Malaysia, France, South Africa, Pakistan, Canada, Austria and Poland taking part, along with the team relegated from the recently-concluded Pro League, New Zealand.

On the basis of the FIH world rankings, the Polish team had not qualified for this FIH Hockey Nations Cup, thus the tournament will be played with nine teams. It will run from 31 May to 9 June 2024.

Gniezno is no stranger to international tournaments as they hosted the Hockey Series Open in 2018 and the EuroHockey Championship II in 2021.

The women’s event will take place in Spain from June 3-9. The city will be announced at a later stage.

The line-up includes Spain, Japan, Korea, Ireland, Chile, Canada, Italy and New Zealand.

The FIH Hockey Nations Cup was launched in 2021 with the aim of offering a top-level competition to the best-ranked teams not participating in the FIH Hockey Pro League and giving the winning team the option to be promoted to the FIH Hockey Pro League the next season, precisely.

India (women) and South Africa (men) won the first edition of the FIH Hockey Nations Cup in 2022.
