2020 FIH Pro League

The FIH Pro League NZ presented by Sentinel Homes hit New Zealand shores in the summer of 2019. We hosted a series of packed games, including a sell-out game against Great Britain in Christchurch and a special ANZAC Day event against Australia in Auckland. We saw several thrilling goals, ‘on-the-edge-of-your-seat’ penalty shoot-outs and just all-round epic performances by both the Vantage Black Sticks men and women against the world’s best hockey nations.

Hundreds of hockey fans got to meet the Vantage Black Sticks along the journey and over 100 kids got the opportunity to run around on the Polytan turf for an hour at the newly constructed stadium, Ngā Puna Wai, in Christchurch with the Vantage Black Sticks men.

The global hockey league is returning in 2020 to repeat the phenomenal competition as all the teams step it up a notch in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

  • Watch the Vantage Black Sticks play on home turf in February 2020 as they embark on their journey to Tokyo.
  • See both the men and women compete in doubleheaders against Belgium, Great Britain, USA/Spain and Argentina.
