MEDIA ACCREDITATION PROCESS – 2019 FIH PRO LEAGUE

Share this article

Applications for media accreditation are open for the 2019 FIH Pro League matches to be played within Australia (with matches in Melbourne, Hobart, Perth & Sydney) in February and March.

 

Accreditation can be downloaded via this link & must be submitted to ben.somerford@hockey.org.au for approval. All applications must be sent 48 hours prior to the matchday you intend to attend.

 

The new FIH Pro League is a ground-breaking competition which sees nine of the world’s best teams face off in the world’s first global home-and-away sporting league.

 

The Kookaburras and Hockeyroos will play eight home matches each in February and March, before overseas matches all over the globe from April to June and the finals in the Netherlands in late June. All matches will be broadcast on FOX SPORTS in Australia.

 

The FIH Pro League has effectively replaced the Champions Trophy and World League as an entertainment product which will provide – for the first time ever – a regular calendar of must-see events played in packed stadia across the world and throughout the year.
