At the end of November South Africa will host the inaugural FIH Nations Cup competition in Potchefstroom. The tournament features the 8 best nations not currently included in the FIH Pro League, with the winner of the tournament earning a place in the 2023/24 FIH Pro League.

The South African Hockey Men are in Group B alongside France, Ireland and Pakistan with the top two progressing to the semi-finals.
