The Hockeyroos and Kookaburras will play their FIH Pro League 2020 Home matches in Sydney and Perth next year.
Sydney will play host to a blockbuster Australia Day weekend of fixtures against fellow world hockey powerhouse Belgium on 25/26 January.
This will be followed by back-to-back double headers at the Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre against Great Britain, who are the current Olympic women’s hockey goal medalists.
Attention then turns to Perth where the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos will take on Argentina on 6/7 March before playing their final matches of the global competition against cross Tasman rivals New Zealand on 16/17 May.
Sydney and Perth both hosted home matches in the inaugural season of the Pro League.
All FIH Pro League matches to be staged in Sydney in 2020 are supported by the NSW Government via its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
That there will again be matches in Perth is also of significant benefit with the Hockey Australia High Performance setup and both national teams being based in the Western Australian capital.
The introduction of the FIH Pro League at the start of 2019 was described as the biggest shake-up to the international hockey calendar in more than a decade.
The second edition of the FIH Pro League sees the world number one Kookaburras enter the competition as the reigning champions, while the Hockeyroos will be attempting to go one better after finishing runners-up in 2019.
Tickets for all of Australia’s home fixtures in the FIH Pro League 2020 are available now through Ticketek.
