Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Police is going to organize the All India Police Hockey Championship 2019 at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar tentatively scheduled from December 16 to December 25, informed DGP BK Sharma on Friday.
Hockey teams from various State Police Organisations and Central Police Organisations will be participating in the event. There will be around 800 participants including some national-level players.
“As hockey matches have already been hosted at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar, the State Police has experience in facilitating stay of the teams. We hope there will be no issue in the arrangements and the Police Hockey tournament, which is held for the first time in Odisha, will be organized smoothly,” said Sharma.
