The biennial FIH Congress will have an enormous attendance, when representatives from national associations will meet in London on Saturday 11 November. More than 80 countries affiliated to the FIH already announced their presence.

At the moment, there are 117 national association member of the FIH. This number will probably increase after the London Congress, as based on a recommendation of the Executive Board the Congress delegates will approve five new member associations. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Ecuador and Estonia have sent their applications and are expected to be endorsed.

Beside the Congress, more FIH activities are scheduled in London early November. The day before the Congress, the FIH WorldHockey Forum “Synergy for Success” will take place. Furthermore, the FIH Office Bearers, the FIH Executive Board and all FIH Committees will meet in London prior to the Congress.
