Hockey One is Australia’s brand new premier field hockey domestic competition, contested by seven states and territories has begun today.
This brand new league format promises to deliver fans some tough competition and thrilling entertainment. Hockey One has replaced the former Australian Hockey League (AHL).
The aim of the league is to reinvigorate the sport and gain a new generation of fans.
There are a total of 48 games scheduled for the season, with the competition to finish with the grand final on 16 November.

The Concept : 
Each club features both a men’s and a women’s team, with games to be played as double-headers. After seven home-and-away rounds, the top four teams will qualify for the finals.
Teams Participating
The teams, each with a men’s and a women’s playing squad under the same name, and home venues are:
 Adelaide Fire (State Hockey Centre, Gepps Cross)
 Brisbane Blaze (Queensland State Hockey Centre, Morningside)
 Canberra Chill (National Hockey Centre, Lyneham)
 Hockey Club Melbourne (State Netball & Hockey Centre, Parkville)
 New South Wales Pride (Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre)
 Perth Thundersticks (Perth Hockey Stadium, Curtin University Campus, Bentley)
 Tassie Tigers (Tasmanian Hockey Centre, New Town)
The Rules
When a field goal or a penalty stroke is scored during play, the goalscorer has a one-on-one shootout with the goalie to potentially add another goal.
Another new implementation is “pump plays” where teams are restricted to 9 players instead of 11 for the last 5 minutes of a quarter.
This is sure to create some thrilling highlights as during pump play goals will be worth double! Now that’s sure to create excitement for both old and new fans.
Fans will also never be left with the disappointment of a draw again. All matches will have a winner, with any tied matches to be decided by a shootout.
A special points system has been introduced to ensure any side who loses via a shootout still receives some reward.
Sponsors
On 23 September 2019, Hockey Australia confirmed that the new league had secured a major partnership with Kellogg’s, with naming rights also afforded to the company, forming the Sultana Bran Hockey On.
