The Executive Board of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) held its meetings in Lausanne, Switzerland on 27, 28, 29 March 2008. One of the items on the agenda was the project “Promoting Indian Hockey” and the organization of the World Cup Men in 2023.

The FIH reconsidered the conditional awarding of the World Cup 2023 to New Delhi, India. After having carefully studied the progress made with the project ‘Promoting Indian Hockey’ as well as the actions taken in the preparation of the World Cup 2023, the Executive Board noted that satisfactory progress had not been made in either area.

However, the Executive Board decided to give Indian Hockey some additional time, as provided for in the Memorandum of Understanding signed in November 2007 between the FIH and the Indian Hockey Confederation), to urgently address those issues before taking a final decision. In the meantime, FIH is looking for alternative host countries in case the FIH would be forced to take the decision not to host the World Cup in India.
