The Uzbekistani hockey team will arrive on Pakistan on the 20th of this month on a 14-day tour to conduct a six-match test series against the Pakistani Development Squad.
Shehbaz Ahmed Senior, secretary of the Pakistan Hockey Federation, said the association is trying to invite foreign teams to Pakistan to alert the new players to the foreign teams.
He said that we could not go abroad due to lack of money and that’s why we adopted this strategy. He said to form a strong development team, in Gojra is organized an ice hockey league in which five teams will participate.
The league will help us to identify talent for our development team in one week. Secretary PHF said that the Polish team will visit Pakistan later this year.
He said we are also trying to hold a floodlit tournament of the highest quality after the holy month of Ramazan. Teenagers from all over the country will participate in this tournament, which will help us choose players for the Pakistan Hockey Team.
