The Pan American hockey federation has rapidly responded to the CDC’s warning that Americans should brace for a coronavirus outbreak.
Globally, there are over 90,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus, identified as COVID-19, primarily in mainland China, where it originated. In the United States, the number has risen to at least 130 confirmed cases.
The Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF) has been monitoring closely the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation that is impacting the global community, in recent days.
In an effort to prevent spreading the virus and following consultation with the USA Field Hockey (USFHA) and local Health Authorities, the PAHF has today taken a decision to postpone the 2020 Indoor Pan American Cup / Indoor World Cup Qualifiers that was originally scheduled for 25 – 29 March 2020 in Lancaster, PA to a date to be announced in the near future.
The Indoor Pan American Cup is an international indoor hockey competition for men and women organised by the Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF).
The tournament started in the year 2002 for both men’s and women’s competition.
In the men’s competition, Canada has won the tournament four times. For the women’s, Argentina and Canada, each has won two times.
