Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) secretary Olympian Asif Bajwa has said that communication with other federations of the world has begun for international assignments of the Green-shirts.
PHF has received letters from FIH and AHF, which granted permission to start hockey and PHF is trying to arrange matches for the Green-shirts.
Secretary General said that they were writing letters to PSB and the provincial sports boards to prepare SOPs for hockey activities. He said that PHF is planning to organise a five-a-side hockey tournament at domestic level by the end of August. This is the future of hockey at international level as FIH is going to organise a five-a-side World Cup in 2023, said Bajwa.
The PHF secretary was of the view that five-a-side events would play an important role in restoration of inter-school and club hockey. He further said that national hockey championship would be organised in September-October period with strict enforcement of SOPs to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
