Malaysian Junior Hockey League will be held in December 2021
Its cancellation last year, the first since its inception in 1995, deprived at least 300 junior players of a chance to showcase their talent.
“We will try to host the JHL in December.
“The competitions’ committee will meet soon to discuss how best to organize the tournament,” said MHC president Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal.
“It all depends on the Covid-19 situation in the country.
“If there is no improvement, we will use the sports bubble concept to organise the JHL.”
Following the cancellation of several international tournaments, the MHC were planning to invite foreign teams for friendly matches in December.
However, the confederation have decided not to go ahead due to travel restrictions and quarantine measures.
“In its place, we will organise the JHL in December,” Subahan added.
However, the Education and Health Ministries will have the final say on whether the JHL can be held in December.
Tenaga Nasional, who is MHC’s biggest sponsor, have four teams, comprising Thunderbolts, Ipoh Anderson, Tunku Mahkota Ismail Sports School (SSTMI) and Temerloh Sports School, in the JHL.
