On November 7, Hockey India made a remarkable move to give financial bonuses to players on both the men’s and women’s teams after a victory.
The decision was made just a few days after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) declared that equal match fees would be paid to the men’s and women’s teams after each cricket match.
According to the policy, HI will provide monetary prizes totaling Rs 25,000 to each member of the support staff and Rs 50,000 annually to the playing players of the men’s and women’s teams.
“As the Indian Teams get ready for the coveted World Cup in January and the Asian Games, I am convinced that this announcement would raise their spirits.
Despite the fact that every member of the core group is employed, a promotion like this will encourage more children to play hockey “According to a press statement from the president of HI.
Following the Indian junior men’s team’s victory at the 10th Sultan of Johor Cup, the governing board made announcements awarding each player Rs 2 lakh and each member of the support staff Rs 1 lakh.
According to HI Secretary General Bholanath Singh, it is a “landmark move” that would not only inspire the Indian teams to strive harder for triumphs but also inspire young, aspiring hockey players to feel that hockey can be a financially successful sport.
Bholanath Singh concluded by saying, “I wish the Indian teams all the best in their endeavors.
