The Spirit of Masters (SoM) is the name for a competition between teams of players who are not selected for international squads, or wish to play at a slightly less intense level of hockey.
SoM competitions take place alongside international matches at WMH Tournaments, at the same facilities and match officials are of the same high quality as the international matches.
This competition is important if WMH is to match the FIH vision of ensuring that hockey is a sport for all ‘from the cradle to the grave’.
SoM as a title, was first used by South African Masters Hockey, who kindly agreed to allow WMH to use this title. It is planned to develop this competition for all age groups from 35 years onwards.
