QualificationEdit

Alongside as the host nation, the top five finishers from the previous edition and the winner of the 2012 Champions Challenge I qualified automatically. The remaining spots were nominated by the FIH Executive Board, making a total of 8 competing teams. If one of the teams refused to play, that place would be awarded to the next best finisher in the previous tournament, the same applies to the teams nominated by the Executive Board.[3]
