Lausanne, Switzerland: As agreed with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) of Hockey India, a FIH delegation comprising of FIH Acting President Seif Ahmed, FIH Executive Board Member and Asian Hockey Federation CEO Tayyab Ikram and FIH CEO Thierry Weil will be in India next week to discuss the current situation of Hockey India.

In particular, the FIH delegation will check the progress made in terms of the drafting of the new Constitution of India’s hockey governing body and renew FIH’s request to have elections held as soon as possible, in order not to jeopardize the upcoming FIH Hockey Men’s World Cup scheduled in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela in January 2023.

The FIH delegation will meet the CoA on 17 and 18 August. Furthermore, the CoA has planned to organise a meeting with the Odisha State Government Commissioner-cum-Secretary and - potentially – a meeting with India’s Sports Minister Mr. Anurag Thakur, on 16 August.
