The International Hockey Federation (FIH) launches its You Tube service www.youtube.com/WorldHockey. Viewers can watch full length coverage of all matches of the WorldHockey Champions Trophy, currently taking place in Rotterdam.
FIH's You Tube site complements its live, free of charge streaming on www.worldhockey.tv. Following the Champions Trophy additional FIH content will be available on the site, such as highlights, player interviews and FIH's monthly magazine show, 'ABN AMRO WorldHockey'.
FIH President, Els van Breda Vriesman, commented, 'I'm delighted that You Tube will bring hockey to a wider audience, especially the younger demographic of the majority of viewers on You Tube.'
