Lausanne- Germans lead the table in the first Indoor World Rankings for both men and women indoor hockey. The new rankings will allow for a transparent way of allocating teams to pools for International FIH events.

The Rankings were developed using the last three Indoor World Cups and Indoor Continental Championships as the basis for the assessment. Previous Indoor World Cups had shown that Europe was the powerhouse of Indoor Hockey. However it is pleasing to see countries from across the globe breaking into the top 10.
