Hockey is an inclusive sport and FIH unequivocally promotes inclusion and diversity. This is a fundamental part of our values and principles, and applies to all FIH events, wherever they might be staged.
Oman is aware of FIH stance on inclusion and diversity and has ensured FIH that everybody will be welcome at the FIH Hockey5s World Cup, no matter their ethnical background, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
We will monitor this very closely with the Oman Hockey Association and the Omani authorities.
Sport is one of the universal languages which helps to build bridges and has proven on a number of occasions that it can be a catalyst for dialogue and positive change in society.
