#1

MUMBAI: In a sign of turbulence for the game of hockey in the country involving a poor relationship between Hockey India and the global body of the sport, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) said that it has received confirmation from Hockey India that they have withdrawn from the Hockey Pro League.

The Hockey Pro League is scheduled to start in in January 2019. Nine teams, both men’s and women’s, will take part.

In a statement the FIH said, “Whilst we regret Hockey India’s decision not to be involved in this exciting new global League, we have replacement teams available following an application process which was oversubscribed.

“Our Event Portfolio Implementation Panel will convene a meeting to discuss the practical implications of a team withdrawal including formally inviting replacement teams to participate in the men’s and women’s League. The first Hockey Pro League Workshop with all participating nations invited is being held in Lausanne, Switzerland later this month.”
