Recent communication with the FIH has indicated that the dates and venues for the World League 2 are being finalised. The majority of the dates are different from what we had been led to believe when the calendar consultation took place. Many of you will be aware of the significant amount of work done to pull together the domestic season with the challenges posed by the amount of competition and timing of International fixtures. The likely outcome is that the work done by the Competitions Committee in conjunction with all the stakeholders - Branches, Clubs, Umpires, High Performance etc could need to be reviewed in the coming weeks. Whilst no doubt the stakeholders will share the IHA's frustration this is out of our hands. That said, it is quite possible that the final outcome could lead to a more cohesive domestic Calendar for this season.
