FIH to IOA: Hockey India as the National Assn of India

New Delhi, Oct 24th 2015, : In continuation to the decision made by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) based out of Lausanne, Switzerland, on 17th September 2015, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has now formally written to the Indian Olympic Association, requesting them to remove all reference of the IHF from their records and website.

The FIH had approved Hockey India (HI) during its Congress in November 2014 as the National Association of India. This decision was later contested by the Indian Hockey Federation in the CAS.

The CAS has delivered its judgement, confirming to reinstate HI as the official governing body for the sport of hockey in India.

Hockey India came into existence in 2009. Since then, it hosted such prestigious international events such as the FIH Champions Trophy, Olympic Qualifiers and FIH Hockey World League. Indian men's and women's team have qualified for the Rio Olympics 2016.

Hockey India through the successful Hockey India League has attracted many international stars.
