The Malaysian Hockey League
In what can only be called as total disregard to the promotion and development of hockey, the Malaysian Hockey Confederation has decided to make a mockery of the inaugural Women's Hockey League by holding it over a three week period.Clubs were fuming on what was deemed as high handedness by the MHC Competition Committee who pushed the fixtures down their throats, pushing aside anything that was raised.
A total of 10 teams have confirmed their entries for a revamped Division One of the Malaysian Hockey League while nine teams signed up for the inaugural womens hockey league.
KL Hockey Club successfully defended their TNB Cup title when they came from behind to edge Tenaga Nasional Berhad 2-1 at the National Hockey stadium in Bukit Jalil.
Some 3,000 fans thronged the National Hockey Stadium to witness the clash of two of the most successful teams in the history of MHL. And lending support was Minister of Youth & Sports Khairy Jamaluddin who is the first serving Sports Minister to attend a final of MHL.
