Dragflick Newsdesk : The world hockey federation FIH canceled the indoor hockey world championship planned for February 2-6 in Liège on Monday after discussions with the organizers in Belgium due to the dramatic pandemic situation in Belgium due to the Omicron variant.
DHB Sports Director Dr. Christoph Menke-Salz commented on the cancellation as follows:
“For us it is similar to the decision to cancel the European Indoor Championships in Hamburg. It is – even if we had not yet nominated the teams – very unfortunate for the athletes and staff as well as of course for the fans, but in view of the pandemic situation it is certainly a sensible decision. ”
The indoor World Cup has already been postponed for a year due to Corona. In the FIH declaration on the second rejection, there is no longer any talk of postponing the date.
