Scottish Hockey Statement Regarding FIH Hockey 5s World Cup

Scottish Hockey has welcomed plans by the FIH to develop Hockey 5s and as part of our strategic review we are planning how we move forward on this exciting new development.

We will be writing to the FIH to ask for clarity following the surprise announcement that the FIH Hockey 5s World Cup is being hosted in Oman, although this has been answered in some part by the recent FIH statement.

Scottish Hockey is committed to our values and is passionate about making the sport inclusive for everyone.

As it stands, the process for nations to qualify for the Hockey 5s World Cup has yet to begin. If Scotland were to qualify, the Scottish Hockey Board would reserve its right to not participate, subject to fully understanding how the FIH and the Omani authorities are working towards making the event inclusive for players, officials and fans alike.
