India secured fourth place in the previous season.
The Indian men’s hockey team will kick off their Men’s FIH Pro League 2023-24 campaign in Bhubaneswar on February 10. They will face Spain and the Netherlands in back-to-back matches at the Kalinga Stadium in their opening two fixtures.
India secured a fourth-place finish in the previous season of the FIH Pro League. Ace defender Harmanpreet Singh will captain the squad with the experienced midfielder Hardik Singh as his deputy. Harmanpreet Singh led India to the gold medal at the 2023 Asian Games and silver medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The team will aim to secure a top-three spot this time. Under coach Craig Fulton, they will play their first four games in Bhubaneshwar, followed by Rourkela. They will wrap up their home fixtures in Rourkela before heading overseas to complete the season.
What is the tournament format?
The season follows the home and away principle, but it is divided into date blocks. To facilitate international and national competition planning, several teams convene at one venue to compete in “mini-tournaments,” where they play two matches against each other.
If one of the two matches between two teams is cancelled, the winner of the other match gets double points.
The winner will qualify directly for the 2026 World Cup.
