Former President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF), Khalid Sajjad Khokhar, had submitted his resignation to the President of the country, which was accepted by President Arif Alvi. Following this development, the Prime Minister appointed Tariq Bajwa as the new President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation.
Khalid Sajjad Khokhar’s resignation marks a significant change in the leadership of the PHF, which has been grappling with various challenges in recent years, including a decline in the performance of the national hockey team and financial issues within the federation.
The appointment of Tariq Bajwa as the new President of the PHF comes after the Prime Minister’s approval, indicating a move towards rejuvenating and revitalizing Pakistan’s hockey scene. Bajwa’s experience and vision are expected to bring a fresh perspective to the federation and pave the way for positive changes in the management and development of hockey in the country.
The issuance of a notification by the Pakistan Sports Board following the Prime Minister’s approval signals the official recognition of Tariq Bajwa as the new President of the PHF. This formalizes the transition of leadership within the federation and sets the stage for the implementation of new strategies and initiatives aimed at reviving Pakistan’s hockey prowess on the international stage.
The appointment of a new President of the PHF is a step forward in the efforts to revitalize and strengthen Pakistan’s hockey infrastructure. It is hoped that under Tariq Bajwa’s leadership, the PHF will be able to overcome its challenges, improve the performance of the national team, and restore the glory days of Pakistani hockey.
This change in leadership presents an opportunity for the PHF to refocus its efforts on nurturing talent, enhancing grassroots development programs, and fostering a culture of excellence within the sport. With the support of stakeholders and the dedication of all involved, Pakistani hockey can once again reclaim its status as a dominant force in the international arena.
