Extract from the Hockey Rules Book 2000 (Page 54)

  1. Field of Play:

    1. Pitch Information: Synthetic Surfaces
      A complete listing of Approved Hockey Products is published and circulated to National Associations and copies can be obtained from the FIH Office in Brussels. The FIH requires the use of approved surfaces for specific international tournaments and information on the actual requirements is also available. The actual information is also available on the web-site at FIHockey.org.

      A Handbook on Performance and Test Requirements for Synthetic Turf Pitches, which includes advice on watering systems, is also available from the FIH Office in Brussels.

    2. Artificial Lighting
      With the assistance of "Philips Lighting" a revised Guide to the Artificial Lighting of Hockey Pitches was produced in 2000 and copies were circulated to National Associations. Additional copies of the Guide can be obtained from the FIH Office in Brussels.

    3. Advertising and Coloured Over-Runs Advice on the requirements and regulations for advertising around the field of play and on coloured over-runs of pitches can be obtained from the FIH.

  2. Hockey balls: Included in the publication of FIH Approved Hockey Products you will find approved balls which are required to be used in specific tournaments.

The FIH published two manuals which are available at the FIH headquarters - attention Mrs Catherine Tummers, Administration Manager:
