FIH retains India as hosts for qualifiers

The International Hockey Federation decided to retain India as hosts for the Olympic qualifiers next year

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) on Saturday decided to retain India as hosts for the Olympic qualifiers next year. At its executive board meeting in Lausanne,the FIH also unanimously decided not to move out any of the events already allotted to India in the next four-year cycle,a move that had appeared likely after the Champions Trophy was shifted to New Zealand following administrative issues in the running of the sport in India. The decision was conveyed by FIH president Leandro Negre to Sports Minister Ajay Maken over phone after the meeting.

The qualifiers are to be held in New Delhi from February 15-25 next year.
