Right now, there are only two representatives from Asia on the Executive Board and they are Asian Hockey Federation president Sultan Azlan Shah and Pakistan’s Qasim Zia.
There will also be a seminar where participants will discuss about the recently launched World League and its impact to the global growth of the sport.
Participants will also get a chance to understand:
• What stakeholders look for in hosting sports events and how they can benefit.
• How to use partners to leverage and influence local stakeholders.
• Case study of tangible benefits from recent FIH events.
