International Hockey Federation (FIH) has confirmed dates for the 2022 Congress, which is set to be held virtually.

The Congress is set to take place on November 4 and 5 next year, with the dates announced following a meeting of the FIH’s Executive Board today.

At this year’s Congress, held virtually in May, Narinder Batra, who is also President of the Indian Olympic Association and a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), defeated Belgium’s Marc Coudron by 63 votes to 61 to be re-elected as FIH President by the smallest winning margin possible.

Other business at today’s Executive Board meeting included an update on preparations for two forthcoming international competitions – the Men’s Junior World Cup, scheduled for Bhubaneshwar in India from November 24 to December 5, and the Women’s Junior World Cup, due to be held in South Africa from December 5 to 16.

Executive Board members also expressed their gratitude to the IOC, Japanese authorities and organisers for staging the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, saying they felt the hockey competitions were a success.

Belgium beat Australia on penalties to win gold in the men’s competition, while The Netherlands beat Argentina 3-1 to win gold in the women’s event.
