Ghana Hockey race for Awards.
The Hockey Revolution Awards that seeks to award individuals, institutions and various national associations for their great effort to support hockey in their country would, this year, be held in Dubai 11th November.
After shortlisting from the tall list, Ghana’s Hockey Association got listed in one category of the various awards.
The performance of Ghana Hockey Association (GHA) during the Hockey World League R1, this year, held in Accra sparked its nomination for this award. Successfully hosting the World League in Accra with great performance led the Federation of International Hockey (FIH) to nominate the association for the Pablo Negre Trophy.
The Pablo Negre Trophy is presented to the National Association that has made significant mark either through innovative programme and initiative or by embracing the spirit of hockey through exceptional sportsmanship. Ghana’s Hockey Association is competing with Hockey Association of Malawi, Pakistan Hockey Federation, Peru Hockey Federation, Sierra Leone Hockey Association, Solomon Island Hockey Association, Thailand Hockey Association and USA Field Hockey for this trophy.
Other awards and trophies on that day include Guust Lathouwers Memorial Trophy, Theo Ykema Award, Etienne Glichitch Award, Super Fair Play Trophy Rene G Frank and HRH Sultan Azlan Shah Award
