@Anurag_Office
Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur today launched the Delhi Hockey Weekend League 2021-22 which is taking place at the iconic Major Dhyanchand National Stadium. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Thakur said that the success of the Men's team and Women's team in the Tokyo Olympics has given a new lease of life to Hockey as a sport in India. He said that there is no dearth of talent in the country.
 
The Minister congratulated Delhi Hockey for this initiative which will help induct more talent at the grassroots. He said the government aims to nurture grassroots talent towards global excellence. Training and competitions are equally important as they boost the morale of athletes. The Hockey League, which is being organised by the Sports Authority of India in association with the Delhi Hockey Federation, will have a total of 36 teams competing for the trophy and more teams can also participate in later stages. The event starts today and over every weekend four matches will be played.
