Additionally, it establishes quotas for events like the Olympic Games and the World Cup.
The FIH implemented a new match-based world rankings system beginning in 2020 that is similar to the ones used in association football and rugby union. Prior to this, there was Continental championships method. For each of the continental competitions, FIH assigned a certain number of ranking points. The system, however, was questioned because each continent received a varied percentage of points. Only Europe had 100% of the available points for every classification, whereas the other regions only had a few finishers with 100% of the available points. Regardless of the classifications, Africa was the only continent where neither the men's nor the women's competitions received their full amount of points.
