To organize FIH Men’s Hockey World Cup in January 2023, the Odisha government has estimated to spend nearly Rs 1,100 crore.

In the last Hockey World Cup, the state government spent only Rs 66.98 crore on hosting. This time, the outlay has been increased by 16 times to Rs 1,098.40 crore.

The 2018 World Cup matches were held in Bhubaneswar’s Kalinga Hockey stadium. However, this time, the newly constructed Birsa Munda Hockey Stadium in Rourkela will share the hosting with Bhubaneswar.
