The Euro Hockey League will adopt the latest FIH timing rules for the 2015/16 EHL season which begins on October 9-11, 2015 in Hamburg with Round 1.

This means that matches will now be played in four 15 minute quarters with 40 second time stoppages for penalty corners and for goal celebrations.

The alignment of the rules will increase the similarities between the international and club game, reducing some of the confusion that previously existed for players, officials, spectators and television audiences over the differences in match timing.

England's representatives in the first round in Hamburg are East Grinstead who will face Monkstown (Ireland) and Club Egara (Spain.)
