2018 IMHA World Cup

The detailed planning for the last ever IMHA World Championships is at an advanced stage with over 100 teams already registered. It will be held in Terrassa, near Barcelona, 27th July – 5th August. Future World Cups will be under the banner of the WMH.

There will be a tournament for those Women’s 60+ teams, who wish to play alongside their younger colleagues in Terrassa, as per the 2016 IMHA Congress decision regarding women’s 60+ membership of the IMHA. However, this will not be a recognised World Cup for this age group. Click here for more information and background.

2019 WMH Indoor World Cup

This will be the first ever WMH tournament. It will be hosted by Hong Kong at the time of the 2019 Chinese New Year. There was little to separate the 2 high quality bids received,  but although not selected this time, the Moroccan Hockey Federation can be justifiably proud of their contribution to a closely fought contest.

 

The International Masters Hockey Association (IMHA) was formed in 2007 to administer and to promote international field hockey for men and women for 35 years of age and over.

Originally, countries around the Pacific Rim held fledgling Masters tournaments, but as European nations embraced the concept, it was realised that a global organisation was needed.

 In 2008 the IMHA was formally recognised by the Federation International de Hockey (FIH) as the official body for Masters Hockey age groups from 35+.

The main aim of the IMHA is to promote and develop international tournaments for Masters Hockey players of all hockey nations, not only for elite players selected for their country, but also for those who want to compete against Masters players of a similar standard from other countries.

From a starting point of a few teams from the original five Pacific Rim countries, the number of teams competing in IMHA tournaments has grown to over 120.

When IMHA tournaments take place close to venues for major events on the FIH Calendar, IMHA players can play in their own competitions and then watch world class hockey.

In 2014 the IMHA became a limited company registered in Scotland in the UK.
