As a mark of respect for, and to pay tribute to, U.S. National Teams Manager Larry Amar, who passed away this week whilst with the U.S. Women’s National Team, and also to provide support to Team USA at this particularly painful time, the International Hockey Federation (FIH), USA Field Hockey and Dutch Hockey Association (KNHB) have jointly decided to cancel the first match of the upcoming FIH Hockey Pro League double-header between USA and The Netherlands initially scheduled on Friday, January 24, at Karen Shelton Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C.
However, the second match, planned on Sunday, January 26 in the same venue, is maintained and, in accordance with the League’s regulations for a cancelled match, the points of this match will count double (6 points for the winning team, no point for the losing team; in case of penalty shoot-outs, the team winning the penalty shoot-outs session will get 4 points and the losing team 2 points).
Yesterday, FIH had extended its condolences and deepest sympathy to Larry Amar’s family, friends and all members of USA Field Hockey.
All tickets purchased for Friday will be refunded back onto the card used for payment. All refunds are currently in process.
