FIH Rule Changes 1st January
Yesterday (Tuesday 18th December) the FIH announced a number of new rule changes that are coming into the new rule book, published on 1st January. Some of these rule changes include:
In Wales and any joint England Wales leagues these new rules will not come into play until the 2019/2020 season. The only exception to this will be the existing knock out cup competitions (Championship, Trophy & Challenge) where the new rules will be played from Semi-Finals onwards. An announcement on youth cup competitions will be made at a later date.
WHUA will release some guidance on these rules changes over the course of the close season.
