FIH New World Ranking System for 2020 
  • It will come into effect from 1st Jan 2020.
  • The new ranking will be match-based instead of tournament-based calculation, for a better reflection of current performances.
  • The FIH cited “numerous restrictions” of the tournament-based system for the change:
    1. These include limited opportunities for lower-ranked teams to earn points.
    2. The “subjectivity” required to determine the strengths of the five continents in order to calculate continental ranking points.
    3. The new match-based world ranking system involves an exchange of points between two teams competing in each FIH-sanctioned match played.
    4. The number of points exchanged depends on a trio of factor 1) the result of the match 2) the relative ranking of the teams 3) the importance of the match.
  • The outgoing world ranking system was in existence since 2003.
