Lucknow is ready to host Junior Men Hockey World Cup!

The Dhyan Chand stadium at Lucknow is likely to host Junior Men Hockey World Cup in December 2016. A new synthetic turf has been laid at the Dhyan Chand stadium, which is all set to host the prestigious tournament. The old turf had worn out and was in need of a replacement for almost a year.

The mega Championship is going to be held from 1st December 2016 to 11th December 2016 at Dhyan Chand stadium, Lucknow.

Dhyan Chand stadium has hosted important tournaments like the Indira Gandhi Gold Cup Hockey Tournament in the past. The All India KD Singh ‘Babu’ hockey tournaments both at the senior and the sub-junior level are held here every year. It has also played host to senior women’s hockey nationals, etc. This year also All-India tourneys were held here. It is a wonderful stadium and on a new synthetic turf, tournaments can be organised in a better way. The good upkeep of such a beautiful stadium is a must.

Held every four years, the Junior Men Hockey World Cup brings together the world’s greatest teams and most skillful players for the toughest, most competitive international hockey event. Sixteen teams would take part in the World Championship, confirming the growing interest and development of the sport.

This time the fans in Lucknow will have the opportunity to witness match under lights. In earlier editions, the matches were played under the sun as the flood light was not in place.

Junior Men Hockey World Cup will improve Uttar Pradesh’s positioning as an International Sports Hub, will act as a catalyst in marketing BRAND UTTAR PRADESH as a destination with world Class Sports Infrastructure and have a potential to boost the economic growth of the state.

There is a confidence amongst people for economic growth post Junior Men Hockey World Cup – as industries like hospitality, tourism, sports goods manufacturers, infrastructure, etc will get a boost and act as a positive variable contributing to the economic growth in long run.

Successfully holding international sports event will exert a great influence on the development of Uttar Pradesh and expose the audiences to top-level non-cricket competition and encouraging the youth to “come out and play” emphasising fitness and global representation.

Large scale sports development / world-class venues in Uttar Pradesh will attract world-class sport players from all around the world and helps the state to become a sports tourism hub.
