Hockey: India to host Men’s Junior World Cup in 2025


The Executive Board of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has awarded the organisation of the next FIH Hockey Men’s Junior World Cup to India and is set to be played in December 2025.

It will be the first time ever that a FIH Hockey Junior World Cup will include as many as 24 teams. The last edition of the FIH Hockey Men’s Junior World Cup took place in 2023 in Malaysia and was won by Germany. India hosted three of the last four editions – in Bhubaneswar, Lucknow and New Delhi and had won the 2016 edition in Lucknow.

FIH President Tayyab Ikram said, “Giving more opportunities to play to a larger and more diverse number of National Associations is one of the key pillars of our Empowerment and Engagement strategy. We saw at the FIH Hockey5s World Cup in Oman this year how more diversity brings a huge added value to our events.”

“Therefore, I’m very happy that we’ve increased the number of participating teams for the FIH Hockey Junior World Cups and I look forward to seeing these 24 young teams, representing the future of our sport, next year.”

Dr. Dilip Tirkey, President of Hockey India said: “This prestigious tournament highlights India’s growing importance in international hockey and shows our dedication to developing the sport for future generations. We’re excited to share India’s rich hockey history and provide a stage for young talent to showcase their skills.”

Shri Bhola Nath Singh, Secretary General of Hockey India said: “This event offers a fantastic chance to bring hockey to even greater heights, inspiring a whole new generation of players and fans in India and globally.”
