The inaugural season of Bridgestone World Series Hockey (WSH) will see a star-studded opening.
Eight Pakistan players, including
former captain and Global `All Star` forward Rehan Butt, have
signed up for the USD 2 million prize money World Series
The cloud of doubt that
threatened to disrupt the million-dollar World Series Hockey
(WSH) has been after the warring factions Hockey India (HI)
and Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) entered an interim
arrangement on Monday.
The International Hockey Federation on Friday made it clear that it does not recognise the IHF-organised World Series Hockey and the event remains unsanctioned as per the FIH statutes and bye-laws.
Around 176 hockey players from India and across the world are all set to take part in the World Series Hockey.
Unperturbed by the FIH diktat asking member countries to either stay away from the World Series Hockey or risk Olympic exclusion, the organisers of the league said they will "go ahead" as planned.
Pakistan hockey players want to be a part of million dollar prize money World Series Hockey (League) in India although the IHF has left the decision on Indian government.
