Men’s World Cup holders Australia and women’s Olympic and World champions Netherlands remain at the top of the FIH World Rankings.

There’s no change in the men’s top three nations, with Netherlands ranked second and Germany third. While England move into fourth, Argentina continue their rise as they move up to fifth place.

India jumped up two places into sixth as they look to enter the top five nations in the world, while the biggest rise in the men’s rankings saw Venezuela move up 22 places to 47.

In the women’s rankings, despite losing the EuroHockey Championships 2015 final to England, Netherlands remain in top spot.

Australia followed by Argentina make up the top three, New Zealand in fourth, whilst only 13 points separate China, England and the USA positioned fifth, sixth and seventh place respectively. Dominican Republic made the biggest rise as they moved from 51 to 37.

The rankings were confirmed following the conclusion of the African Hockey Championships 2015.

The next update to the FIH World Rankings will be published following the last two events of the year - the men’s Hero Hockey World League Final in Raipur, India (27 November–6 December) and the women’s Argentina Hockey World League Final in Rosario, Argentina (5-13 December).
