They will battle against Germany on the 1st and 8th June and against Great Britain on 2nd and 9th June in a bid to end their campaign with as many points as possible. After the Antwerp stage, the Women’s Team is placed 7th while the Men’s Team is 3rd in the points table.

The Indian Men’s Hockey Team has now amassed 21 points from 12 matches, while their opponents Germany and Great Britain sit in 6th and 9th position respectively, having played only 4 matches in the FIH Hockey Pro League 2023/24 so far.

Reflecting on the team’s performance so far Captain Harmanpreet Singh said, “We played some intense matches against Argentina and Belgium in Antwerp, both in the same pool as us in the Paris 2024 Olympics. We played scintillating hockey in some moments while we struggled in a few others, but the team is constantly improving.

We also used this opportunity to give some match experience to the younger players in the squad and improve our overall chemistry.”

“The aim in these upcoming matches will be to get out of our blocks early, work on our combinations and positioning to make sure we play to the best of our abilities. We are aware that the London stage of FIH Hockey Pro League 2023/24 will be crucial in our preparations for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics, hence we are looking forward to taking on Germany and Great Britain,” Harmanpreet Singh added.

The Indian Women’s Hockey Team is now placed 7th after earning 8 points from 12 matches, while their opponents Germany and Great Britain sit in 6th and 8th position respectively, having played 4 matches in the FIH Hockey Pro League 2023/24 so far.
