New Delhi: The two-year-long journey of the new Hockey World League culminates with the eight-team World League Final which gets underway at the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium here Friday.

The trophy to be awarded to the Hockey World League winner was unveiled here in the presence of all the captains of the participating teams.

The tournament is the first hockey event of 2014, a year that will also feature the World Cup and Champions Trophy.

“We have been very successful in presenting our newest event to global hockey. We are really pleased that the World League has successfully introduced new nations to international hockey," said international hockey federation (FIH) president Leandro Negre.

"I hope that the first event of 2014 turns out to be a massive success. After all, it is held in India, a country famed for its love of hockey.”
