The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has imposed a hefty fine of 176,000 Euros on Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) for not honouring the Pro League commitments.
Pakistan sports body has been given time until 20 June to pay the fine or else the penalty would be doubled.
Confirming the fine, PHF said it was in no position to pay the penalty.
PHF Secretary General Shahbaz Ahmed said that he has requested the FIH to reduce the fine and allow it to be paid in instalments. Pakistan’s sports body was fined for not sending the national team for the Pro League matches in Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.
