KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 -- The Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) has decided to postpone the 2020 Men’s Junior Asia Cup Tournament and also the 2020 Women’s Asian Champions Trophy competition in June to a later date, due to global COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are as disappointed as you to see this having become necessary and we are working closely with the tournament hosts to finalise new dates as soon as possible,” it said.

Based on initial schedule, the 2020 Men’s Junior Asia Cup Tournament is slated to be held from June 4 to 12, while the 2020 Women’s Asian Champions Trophy competition will take place in Donghae, South Korea from June 14 to 21.
