The 45th FIH Congress will be held in Dubai from 8-13 November 2016
More than 300 delegates from over 80 affiliated nations will be in attendance
Progress on FIH’s 10 year Hockey Revolution strategy to be discussed
The six-day event, which runs from 8-13 November 2016, will comprise meetings, social events, networking opportunities and presentations. The main Congress meeting will take place on Saturday 12 November, during which time new National Associations will be welcomed and elections for Executive Board membership will take place.
With more than 300 delegates, representing over 80 affiliated countries, this is the ideal platform for the hockey world to come together to discuss the sport and its future. During Congress, delegates will have the opportunity to hear more and ask questions about the Hockey Revolution, FIH’s 10-year strategy to drive hockey’s status as a global sport.
His Excellency Saeed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council said: “Dubai is a global city and it recognises the value and importance of a flourishing sport sector not only in economic terms but for the benefit of society as a whole. Hosting the FIH Congress represents another positive step forward in Dubai’s ongoing strategy to not only attract new and influential sports to the region but to promote the world-class sporting facilities that exist here. With its strategic location between East and West, Dubai is easily accessible to delegates from all corners of the world and, while they are here, they can take the opportunity to enjoy everything Dubai has to offer.”
