WAPDA Wins the First Pakistan Cup Nine-A-Side Hockey Tournament

WAPDA has been declared the ultimate winner at the first Pakistan Cup Nine-a-side hockey tournament after beating PIA with 4-2 in the final match played at the Abdul Sattar Edhi Hockey Stadium on 14th August, 2016. 2 million were being awarded to the WAPDA team whereas PIA was awarded 1 million Rupees. CM of Sindh was the Chief Guest at this auspicious ceremony. All the trophies were handed over by him.

The match was dominated by the winner WAPDA since the beginning. They took the lead in the first 12 minutes through Ijaz. PIA’s talented player Haseem Khan leveled the score immediately after a minute. However, PIA lost control over the match after this goal. Second goal from WAPDA was scored by Tasawur Abbas and third was scored by Muhammad Irfan. The last goal was also struck by Muhammad Irfan.

The provincial government has promised to give every kind of support for the promotion of Pakistan’s national game. Hockey has been a neglected sport in Pakistan despite being the national game. With these kinds of tournaments, budgets and awards, hockey and its players are encouraged to a great level. Even SSGC and NBP were also given award money for their participation in the tournament.

Until and unless the government and hockey federations in the country will not promote and strengthen hockey at a local level, the sport will not excel internationally as well. Trainings and encouragement are the essential elements for hockey promotion in Pakistan.
