New Delhi: Oct 10, 2014

Former Union Minister and BCCI official Rajeev Shukla will continue to be a member of the Hero Hockey India League’s advisory board. He has also been the Chairman of Indian Premier League.

“It is a very proud feeling and I am committed towards continuing to put in the extra efforts for the welfare of the sport in India,” he said.

In 2012, before the tournament was officially launched, Nirender Batra, the chirman of HIL had said that the appointment of personalities from outside hockey would increase the league’s standard and profile.

Hockey India League is scheduled to kick-start from January 22.
