Youth Olympic Qualifiers’ Camp now in Karachi

Lahore, March 28, 2018 (PPI-OT): The hockey camp for the Youth Olympics qualifiers, originally scheduled to be held in Islamabad and Rawalpindi would now be conducted at the Abdul Sattar Edhi hockey stadium in Karachi. The change has been necessitated due to the traveling distance involved between players’ accommodation in Islamabad and the training venue, Shahnaz Sheikh hockey stadium in Rawalpindi.

Now, the players would reside and train at the same place, Karachi’s Abdul Sattar Edhi hockey stadium. The rooms here have been recently renovated and have good air conditioning facilities as well. The probables have been directed to report to Kamran Ashraf, the coach of the national junior team, at the Abdul Sattar Edhi hockey stadium by the afternoon of 1st April. The Asian hockey qualifiers for the Youth Olympics are to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from April 25-29. The top two teams from these qualifiers will represent Asia at the Youth Olympics.
