Hockey WC rescheduled on account of IPL - Mr.Bhat - 08-08-2009

To avoid a clash with the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Hockey World Cup in India next year will start a week earlier.

The World Cup was originally scheduled to be held from 7-20 March, 2010 which meant that it would coincide for at least six days with the third edition of the IPL.

The event will now be held from 28 February to 13 March says the Federation Internationale de Hockey (FIH) with an aim to ensure a better worldwide promotion of FIH’s showcase event.
India, Canada, Korea and South Africa have already qualified for the World Cup. The qualifying process to identify the other seven teams will conclude in November, 2009.
