Pakistan Hockey Team to leave for Olympic 2020 Qualifiers tonight

The Pakistan Hockey Team will depart for Olympic 2020 Qualifiers tonight 3:20 AM.

Pakistan will play two test matches against Germany before going to Holland for the qualifiers on October 22nd and 23rd 2019. They will then depart for Netherlands to compete in the Olympic 2020 qualifying matches against the hosts on October 26th and 27th 2019.

The winners of the FIH Hockey Olympic Qualifiers will qualify for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The winners will be determined as follows: teams will be ranked according to the number of points each has accumulated in both matches (for each match, 3 points are awarded to the winner, 1 point to each team in the event of a draw and 0 point to the loser).

If there is equality among the two teams, then the teams will be ranked according to their respective goal difference. If the equality remains, a shoot-out competition will be played to establish the winner. Therefore, the objective of the Pakistan Men’s Hockey Teams will be to secure direct qualification for the Tokyo 2020 hockey tournaments – which will be staged in Japan’s capital city from 25 July to 7 August next year and involve 12 Men’s and 12 Women’s teams.
