Facilities Information Hub

The future success of hockey in Australia has taken a significant leap forward with the establishment of a world standard national Facilities Information Hub for the sport.

The Hub is a one-stop shop for Hockey facilities – from lobbying to construction and everything in between – in one centralised location.

With clear, concise and user-friendly resource guides available to digest and download, the Hub is aimed at assisting Australia’s legion of hockey volunteers, clubs, venues and communities across the nation with every aspect of facilities.

The Facility Resource Guides are as follows:

The Hockey Revolution

Hockey 5's Courts

Turf & Field Standards

Building Hockey Fields

Hockey Field Equipment

Hockey Field Irrigation

Lighting for Hockey Fields

FIH Facilities Guidance Resources

A key role of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) is to ensure high quality, sustainable hockey facilities are provided for all levels and forms of the game.

This is done by establishing quality and performance standards and publishing facilities guidance documents. The current editions have been developed in consultation with national associations and members of the FIH Quality Programme.
