On Thursday, a workshop was conducted by the International Hockey Federation (FIH) for Hockey India state unit members. Hockey India got an opportunity to understand the facilities’ strategy and identify features in a workshop of 3 hours.

“It was really interesting to host a facilities workshop for each of the Hockey India 31 State Member Units. While the venues used in India for FIH events were always world-class, I am sure that Hockey India will improve the facilities at their venues even more after today’s workshop,” FIH CEO Thierry Weil said.

“We look forward to collaborating on more workshops for the growth of hockey in the future,” he added.

Indian Hockey President, Mohd Mushtaque Ahmad said, “We can stage the best of matches only if the facilities are top class at our venues and Hockey India has always strived to arrange the best facilities for the players, support staff and the fans.”

“Therefore, it was very important for our State Member Units to attain more knowledge about facilities management and maintenance so that we can improve our current stadiums and take our standards to the next level in the upcoming years,” Ahmad added.
