The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has stepped in to address the ongoing dispute within the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) by sending a letter directly to the PHF. The FIH seeks clarification regarding the legitimate representatives and leadership of the PHF amidst the presence of parallel bodies led by Tariq Bugti and Shehla Raza.

Failure to resolve this issue by the end of the week could jeopardize Pakistan’s participation in key tournaments, including the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup and the FIH Nations Cup. This uncertainty puts Pakistani players in a precarious situation, with their competitive opportunities hanging in the balance.

To address the matter, the Ministry for Inter-provincial Coordination (IPC) has scheduled a meeting for April 25, aiming to ascertain the PHF’s official stance and hear from the Shehla Raza faction, which has organized a training camp in Karachi after splitting from the federation.

With Pakistan’s participation in upcoming tournaments at stake, swift resolution of the internal conflict within the PHF is imperative to ensure the country’s representation in international hockey competitions.
