FIH appoints field hockey refs for Tokyo 2020

The officials who will referee games in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 were
announced by the International Hockey today.

In guidance set out by the Olympic agreed guidelines with the FIH all
officials will be those who are at the top of the game with the FIH Pro league.

While performance was the primary selection criteria, the Officials Committee also considered the geographic locations of the Officials to ensure that all continents are represented.

With the FIH’s equality drive at heart Technical Officials will work across both male and female matches.
Moreover, while on field Umpires will be the same gender as the match players.
Video Umpires may be the other gender as has been successfully adopted
during the FIH Pro League this year.
