Malaysia will feature yet again in the International U16 Whitsun Cup, held in Mannheim, Germany from the 13th to the 16th of May 2016, after a two-year hiatus.
Malaysia will leave for Germany on the 9th of May and play 2 friendly matches against Mannheim Hockey Club (Youth) on the 12th of May 2016.
This team was selected from the National U16 Tournament held in KL early this year, and the final squad of 18 was established after a 4 day camp in Ipoh, during the 2016 Azlan Shah Cup.
The Malaysian Hockey Confederation reiterates its commitment towards development and the formulation of a strong team for the Junior World Cup 2020.
It is then imperative to understand that results, although significant, currently takes a backseat to the overall plan.
The coaches for this tournament are Nor Saiful Zaini and Sufian Mohamed.
We wish the team the best and are 100% in support of the players and coaching staff in this very prestigious and high-quality tournament.
