LAHORE – Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) Secretary Shahbaz Ahmed Sr Tuesday mentioned the dues of the gamers can be cleared as quickly the grant from the federal government is obtained.
The Pakistan hockey crew staged a protest final week over non-issuance of their due each day allowance. Speaking to APP, Shahbaz mentioned the gamers have been misquoted for his or her protest and they are going to be collaborating in Asian Video games.
“Our grant of Rs 180 million has been stopped by the federal government as a consequence of unknown causes and as quickly as we get the grant we are going to clear all of the gamers’ allowances,” he mentioned.
He mentioned the sport of hockey can not prosper till it’s given prime precedence by the federal government. “Regardless of repeatedly contacting the earlier Punjab authorities we weren’t given time for holding Pakistan Hockey League,” he mentioned.
Shahbaz mentioned PHF must have a correct annual price range as to handle hockey affairs itself. “Each time we have now to plea for grants from the federal government for participation in tournaments,” he mentioned.
He urged the federal government to construct hockey centres within the nation as to coach the youth from grass-root stage. “Training and food plan should be offered there as a way to groom them based on worldwide requirements,” he mentioned.
