Champions Trophy Melbourne 2012
Melbourne, Australia - December 1 - 9, 2012


Men's Player of the Year to be announced Tomorrow

December 7, 2012
Dwyer, Fuerste, Hauke, van der Horst and Sardar make short list

On Saturday, the FIH will announce its men’s 2012 Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year at the Champions Trophy in Melbourne, Australia. It was a packed international calendar for the top men’s teams with the Olympic preparation events, the London 2012 Games and naturally the Champions Trophy here in Melbourne.

After receiving input from the teams participating at the Champions Trophy and Champions Challenge in Argentina, the potential field of candidates has been trimmed down to five per category. Below is the list of the players and coaches that made the cut.

For the first time, the Young Player of the Year is open to players under the age of 21, instead of the previous U23 cutoff. The women’s Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year will be announced in early 2013. The Coach of the Year for both men and women will also be announced at that time.


Will your favorite player receive hockey’s top honor this year? Tune in on Saturday to find out!
