The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has received bids from Australia, Germany, India, Malaysia, New Zealand and Spain for the next editions of its flagship men’s and women’s World Cups.

Bidding countries were asked to confirm their interest by January 31 and also choose between the two time windows – July 1-17, 2022 or January 13-29, 2023 – for hosting the sporting events.

While Germany has expressed interest in the 2022 window for either the men’s or women’s tournament; Malaysia and Spain have opted the same window for hosting only the men’s event.

On the other hand India, which hosted a hugely successful version of the men’s World Cup last year, has shown interest in the 2023 window for hosting either of the events. Australia and New Zealand have also indicated their preference to host the Women’s World Cup in 2023.

The FIH will now start the evaluation process of the bids before their Executive Board will make the final decision on both hosts in June 2019.

“FIH is glad to have received such strong bids. This confirms how appealing our events are. We’re looking forward to two great FIH World Cups, both men’s and women’s, and a lot of excitement for players and fans,” FIH chief executive Thierry Weil said in a media statement.

The 2018 men’s World Cup was hosted in Bhubaneswar in eastern India from November 28 to December 16; while the women’s tournament was held in London, England from July 21 to August 5.
