DTH News : Delhi HC to hear ESS' suit against IHF on 17 March
MUMBAI: ESPN Star Sports has filed a lawsuit against the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) for striking a deal wth Nimbus for World Series Hockey.

The Delhi High Court has heard both the parties. The next hearing takes place on 17 March.

Back in 2004, ESS had introduced the Premier Hocket League (PHL) in collaboration with the IHF. The deal was for 10 years and ESS had floated a company called Premier Hockey Development (PHD).

The PHL wound up in 2008 after the FIH and IOA withdrew recognition. PHD now wrote a letter but the IHF did not reply. Reports state that ESS wanted to know that the IHF wasn't doing a deal that wasn't contradicting its deal with ESS.

PHD's letter said: "The IHF granted to PHD exclusive and unfettered right during the term to use IHF's name and logo in the league name and logo and in the promotion and broadcast of PHL throughout the world."

"Additionally, while granting the rights, IHF has undertaken to PHD, that no other national, regional or multi-team hockey league or events which could compete with or prejudice the status of PHL will be directly or indirectly run or sanctioned... by IHF or its member associations in their respective territories."

PHD, reports state, is seeking to restrain IHF as well as seeking redressal to the breach of contract as the concept belongs to them.
