''In our mission to bring hockey back to the pitch after the global disruption caused by coronavirus, I am pleased to announce the rescheduling of dates for the postponed Hero Men's Asian Champaions Trophy 2021 in early October this year,'' AHF chief executive Tayyab Ikram said. ''It is yet another victory in our battle against the virus and its effects on the sports world, and I wholeheartedly congratulate the Asian Hockey family, Bangladesh Hockey Federation and hockey lovers worldwide for this win,'' he said in a statement.
Originally, both the tournaments were scheduled to be held last year but were postponed because of the deadly virus. While the original dates of the men's event was from November 17 to 27 last year, the women's tournament was scheduled from June 14 to 21.
