Klang Hockey Fest is BACK with all the bells, whistles and, of course, standard operating procedures (SOPs).
This year’s edition marks the fifth edition of the tournament and significantly celebrates the 20th anniversary of Synergy Hockey Club.
This year’s 5th Klang Hockey Fest will be played over two days – the Veterans tournament on May 28, 2022 and the Open Category on June 25, 2022.
The Veteran Category is a nine-a-side tournament that will feature a 12 invitational teams, followed by a 20th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner at the Klang Executive Club.
The Open Category will feature 16 teams, battling for a total prize money of RM4,500. The winners will receive the Anthony Ravindra Arulanantham Challenge Trophy.

He was active in veteran tournaments and he was also involved in an Under-11 development programme in Klang, until he passed away in October 2019.
Anthony Ravindra also featured for Synergy Hockey Club in various tournaments and state league games, not forgetting in our previous editions of Klang Hockey Fest.
