Venues announced for Pakistan’s FIH Pro League ‘home’ matches

  • Pakistan to play ‘home’ games in Argentina, Belgium, England, Germany and the Netherlands
  • First ‘home’ game for Pakistan in Argentina on 3 February 2019

Lausanne, Switzerland: Pakistan will play their ‘home’ games in Argentina, Belgium, England, Germany and the Netherlands for the inaugural FIH Pro League which will be played from January to June next year.

After FIH had been made aware in early October that the FIH Pro League partnership between the Pakistan Hockey Federation and Scottish Hockey could not reach agreement, FIH held discussions with the Pakistan Hockey Federation and the participating National Associations, investigating solutions for Pakistan’s ‘home’ matches in 2019.

FIH CEO Thierry Weil stated: “Once again, the solidarity of the international hockey family is showcased. It is overwhelming to see that the participating National Associations were willing to adapt their schedules to support a solution for Pakistan. FIH is very thankful to all of them. It was important to find a solution to enable the Asian team to participate and I’m pleased with this outcome.”

  1. It’s quite a shame that sport is so reluctant to re-enter Pakistan. Sport has always been a part of Pakistani culture and seeing Pakistan in this state feels as if a part of our heart keeps being taken from us. Inshallah Pakistanis will see their heroes again soon and I hope other countries and organizations can do their part to help Pakistan.
