“Today the Committee reviewed the financial projections and agreed on a sustainable financial model proposed by the commercial agency who made an elaborate presentation before the Committee. This proposal will be further reviewed by the Hockey India Executive Board next month (10th August) where we will take a decision on its implementation.”

Tirkey added,

“We understand the importance of the HIL which gave immense exposure to our players and has helped in elevating their performance in international hockey. Likewise, we believe the women’s HIL will have a positive impact on bringing desirable results in world hockey. Members of the Committee were pleased with the presentation today and I am happy that we are now moving in the right direction. “

Shri Bhola Nath Singh, Secretary General of Hockey India and a participant in the HIL Committee meeting, expressed his satisfaction with the advancements made towards revitalizing the league. He said,

“We are going step-by-step in this regard and while we are eager to relaunch the league, we want to ensure a sustainable plan is put in place. The commercial agency has proposed a few financial models today. Hockey India’s endeavour is to hold a bigger League that is beneficial to all stake holders particularly the players and the vision is to ensure global viewership.”
