Hockey World Cup: CoA vs International Hockey Federation: The message from the International Hockey Federation (FIH) is quite stern. With the ongoing issues, regarding the adoption of the Hockey India constitution and preparing for a fresh elections, they have questioned India’s ability to host the 2023 Hockey World Cup.

The FIH has been writing to the three-member committee of the CoA, but there has been no response from their side. As a result, the communication from the FIH to the CoA is clear, they have mentioned clearly about the importance of conducting elections else India’s ability to host the competition will be in danger.

“In all honesty, the fact that you have not reacted at all to our letter from last week is giving us concerns as to Hockey India’s ability to host the upcoming FIH Hockey Men’s World Cup, which is of paramount importance for us. To that extent, should Hockey India Constitution-drafting and elections be delayed any further, this will seriously increase our concerns.” The Indian Express quoted FIH’s chief executive Thierry Weil as writing in the letter.

“We would like to reiterate that elections should take place expeditiously to allow the newly (sic) Executive Board of Hockey India to have adequate time to properly organise the FIH Hockey Men’s World Cup, which is scheduled from 13th to 29th January 2023 in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela.”

The FIH are looking for a clear and a detailed timetable from the CoA about the matter for preparing and adopting the constitution and holding elections.

There are also plans from the international body and the Asian Hockey Federation to send a delegation to India and speak with the Indian government and the CoA.
