Now, as mid-September is upon us, we turn to the start of the 2010/11 domestic season, which shows every promise of starting as it finished, with a bang. Last season the EHL Championships were introduced to decide the EHL Premier Division Champions and European qualifiers after proposals brought forward from clubs; the format proved successful and will again provide a showcase finale to the EHL.
The season also promises excitement as it embraces change to the regulations for Premier Division fixtures in the hope that they will help further develop EHL players for the international stage. These include a two minute suspension for green cards and for breaking the line at penalty corner; the rules are used in international tournaments.
