Indian hockey team was not allowed to travel to United Kingdom (UK) after the government there added India to its red list due to the new Covid-19 variant, The News reported today.

Due to the UK government’s ban, the FIH Pro League matches between India and Great Britain have been postponed.

According to a handout released by the global governing body, the Hockey Pro League matches between the two countries scheduled on May 8-9 in London have been set aside.

“FIH, Hockey India and Great Britain Hockey are monitoring the situation in a hope of rearranging these matches at a later date,” the FIH handout said.

India will, however, still travel to Europe in May to play FIH Hockey Pro League matches against Spain (May 15-16) and Germany (May 22-23) while Great Britain will host Germany (May 12-13), USA (Women, May 22-23) and Spain (Men, May 22-23).
