Hockey men’s World Cup: FIH delegation to visit India in August, CEO Thierry Weil says ‘it would be a shame if the World Cup is taken away from India’

FIH asked for one on Wednesday “Detailed Timeline” From the Court Appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on adopting the amended constitution and holding fresh elections of Hockey India.

If Hockey India does not adopt a sports code-compliant constitution soon, the country risks losing its hosting rights to the World Cup, which is scheduled to be held from January 13 to 29.

FIH CEO Weil said they have fixed a tentative date for the tour and are now awaiting confirmation from the COA, which is running the game in the country after the Delhi High Court suspended Hockey India’s executive board for violating the National Sports Code.

“We are planning to visit India on August 15 for 2 to 3 days. We will do whatever is necessary to resolve the matter but we are still awaiting the CoA’s response,” Weil told PTI from Lausanne in an exclusive interview.

“There will be a three-member delegation headed by Acting President Saif Ahmed. We are ready to meet anyone and extend all possible help to solve the problems.”

FIH has written three times to the CoA in this regard but has received no response so far.

Weil said the FIH is still hopeful of hosting the World Cup in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela but if things don’t work out next month, a possible ban on Hockey India is a possibility.

“Certainly, Hockey India will face penalties for not fulfilling the commitment and that will include a ban from international hockey. They have signed a contract to host the World Cup and they are bound to deliver.

“But we are not thinking along those lines yet, because it will be the athletes who will be the biggest victims of any punishment. Also hockey loving Indian fans will be missing out on world class action. We don’t want that.” she said.

The FIH has not yet developed a ‘Plan B’ for hosting the World Cup and hopes that such a situation will not arise at all.

“We have not started working on this (alternative venue) because we want the World Cup to be hosted in India. It will be a huge disappointment for the fans,” Will said.

“If things don’t work out during our tour and the risk continues, we have to think of a plan B. It would be a shame if the World Cup doesn’t happen in India.”

Weil reiterated his concern about the unresponsive behavior of the three-member CoA, despite repeated reminders by the world body about the early formulation and adoption of the HI constitution and fresh elections, which are essential to host the World Cup.

“It is a big concern for us (CoA not responding). We sent an email directly when the High Court passed the order in May, stating that we fully comply with the Hon’ble Court’s decision and will do everything possible on our part to help the CoA. she said.

“The court gave 20 weeks to COA but it was too long for us and we expressed our views. We need to quickly form a Hockey India Board as they are the ones who signed the contract with us.

“Despite repeated follow-ups with the CoA, we have not received any reply. We have not seen the draft constitution. The new constitution must be ratified by FIH by law. We just want CoA to speed things up, 20 weeks is not acceptable to us. Will added.

The Delhi High Court suspended Hockey India’s executive board and placed it under a CoA on a petition filed by former India player Aslam Sher Khan, who challenged Narinder Batra’s life membership in Hockey India.

The court revoked the life membership and Batra ceased to be the IOA president as he had contested and won the IOA elections on the basis of his HI membership. Recently he also resigned from the post of president of FIH.
