The 2019 Men's FIH Pro League is the first edition of the Men's FIH Pro League, a field hockey championship for men's national teams. The tournament stared in January 2019 and is set to finish in June 2019 Amstelveen, Netherlands.[1]

The competition also serves as a qualifier for the 2020 Summer Olympics with the four best teams qualifying for the Olympic Qualification Matches taking place in 2020.

Qualification[edit]

Nine teams compete in a round-robin tournament with home and away matches, played from January to June, with the top four teams advancing to the final at the Wagener Stadium in Amstelveen, Netherlands.[2] In July 2017, Hockey India decided to withdraw the men's national team from the competition as they estimated the chances of qualifying for the Summer Olympics to be higher when participating in the Hockey Series. Hockey India also cited lack of clarity in the ranking system.[3][4] The International Hockey Federation subsequently invited Spain instead.[5]
