In fact, did you know that our country pretty much dominates the sport in Southeast Asia, with both our men’s and women’s squads being the highest-ranked in the region?

The International Hockey Federation World Ranking

Do note that the International Hockey Federation adopted a new World Ranking model in 2020 as approved by its executive board.

Moving away from the previous tournament-based ranking system, this new match-based system involves an exchange of points between the 2 teams competing in each match played.

The number of points exchanged depends on the result of the match, the relative ranking of the teams and the importance of the match.
