Inside FIH

Anti Doping and Medical

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) supports the fight against doping in sport in all its forms. The FIH is a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code. We are proud that hockey is free from the use of performance enhancing drugs and we aim to maintain this situation. The FIH has therefore adopted Anti-Doping Rules which are in full accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code. This part of the FIH website provides general education about anti-doping.
