H1N1 Virus Cancels India Series in Surrey

May 11, 2009

The exhibition and test matches featuring the Canadian women’s national
field hockey team versus Team India, which were to be played between
May 26th and June 4th in Surrey, British Columbia, have been canceled.
Ms Amrit Bose, Hon. Secretary General of the Indian Hockey
Confederation, informed FHC that the decision not to travel to Canada
was based on the advisement from her Department of Sports not to visit
the countries where swine flu cases have been found.

"I am
disappointed that this series got cancelled because these matches would
have been very valuable for both our national and developmental teams
but I understand India’s position", says Canadian head coach Louis

Field Hockey Canada and the Women’s National Team
would like to thank both the band of volunteers who in a short time
worked very hard to organize a professional event and all the sponsors
for their generous support.
