England Hockey statement on Rule changes.
In July 2019 England Hockey published their decision on which of the FIH’s 2019 Rules would be implemented in England & Wales for the domestic 2019-20 season.
All the FIH’s changes except for one will be introduced (more about those will be posted on this website in early August).
The only change that will not come in at the levels that all our Club’s teams play at is the 15-minute quarters – we will hang on to the two 35-minute halves. But EH have decided that, in the highest domestic leagues, four 17.5-minute quarters would be introduced (with no stopped time for PCs).
For further details check out the full EH Press Release.
