New Delhi: Delhi will host the men’s hockey Champions Trophy from December 1-11, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) stated in a release here.
The dates for the tournament, which will be hosted by India, were decided upon after FIH president Leandro Negre held talks with sports minister Ajay Maken and Hockey India (HI) officials earlier this week.
The FIH continued discussions with the authorities in India on the launch of a new professional hockey league, the statement added.
Pertinently, India failed to qualify for the last edition of the Champions Trophy in 2010, held in Monchengladbach, Germany. (AIP)
