The Selangor Hockey League 2012 (SHL2012) is back again!!!

Scheduled from Sept 15th onwards, the SHL2012 has already seen the
confirmed participation of 12 teams and is looking forward to more teams
taking part. The league was revived in 2009 after a seven (7) year lapse
and held again in 2010 has been resounding success despite the lack of
playing surfaces.

The Competition Committee Chairman & Deputy President Selangor Hockey
Association, Dato S.Sivasundaram said SHA is very committed towards
running the Selangor league, but again this year’s faces some major
challenges in terms of venues, as the Pandamaran Hockey Stadium is in dire
need of refurbishing, cleaning and stitching, while the MBPJ hockey
stadium has yet to be re-turfed. As such, the main venue for the league
will be Tun Razak Stadium, MOE Stadium in Pantai , while the UIA Hockey
field host some of the matches.

The SHL 2012 promises to deliver the same level of professionalism and
commitment to complete on schedule as well as within the budget as they
achieved in 2009 & 2010. Prize money totaling RM 11,000.00 is being
offered for the SHL 2012 which will feature at least two divisions.

The closing date for entries will be September 9th 2012 owing to the Raya
holidays. The Organizing Committee is also extending the invitation to
schools who are interested to participate in this league, and have wrote
in to the Sports Unit of the Selangor Education Department, signaling
their intent.
