The International Hockey Federation (FIH) have confirmed that the Mandatory Experimental Own Goal Rule will no longer be within the Rules of Hockey with effect from 1 September 2014.
The Own Goal Rule will remain in place until then. However from 1 February 2014 it will not apply in international hockey. Also, national assocations may continue to apply the rule in order to conclude competitions where the rule has been played. However, this is not mandatory.
