Hockey in the Himalayas

Kathmandu,Feb 11: An ice hockey match will take place in Nepal in July. The 70-minute match will take place 5,200 metres above sea-level within the dramatic Annapurna mountain range.

The campaign titles ‘Hockey for Heroes’ will be livestreamed in its entirety in conjunction with Guinness World Record specifications. The organisers say that they have high hopes of introducing a love of the sport to some of the remotest Nepali communities.

Hockey for Heroes spokesman Joel Forrester said he hoped the world record effort would ensure the whole world heard the charity’s message.
