The 2014-2015 International Hockey Federation (FIH) Field Hockey World League Final will take place November 28th through December 6th in Ralpur, India. Don’t miss a minute of the action as the eight qualifying teams compete for the championship. As the host nation, India automatically qualifies. The remaining qualifiers were decided via the semifinal round which took place in Argentina and Belgium over the summer. The FIH World League is an opportunity for teams to qualify for the Hockey World Cup and the Olympic Games so you can bet each nation is putting their best effort forward to win.
Best VPN to Stream the Field Hockey Final
Though the championship is referred to as the FIH Field Hockey World League Final, the designation of field is mostly North American. The tag is used to separate it from ice hockey, which is more popular in the US and Canada. The game is played all over the world, and is the national sport of Pakistan. As with ice hockey, there is evidence of the game dating back to the middle ages in England. These days, there is a growing popularity of field hockey around the world. Residents of the Southern US are known to play field hockey, mainly because of the lack of ice.
The lineup for the World League Final in Raipur includes Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, India, and The Netherlands. Each team will play their first match during the final week of November with the championship concluding on Sunday, December 6th. The matches will take place at the Rapier International Hockey Stadium in Rapiur, India. You can take a look at the FIH website for a full listing of channels covering the event.
Since the event is being hosted in India, I would recommend Star Sports for streaming the matches live. They provide an excellent service at a great price. If you are located outside of India then you will want to connect to a VPN server before visiting the Star Sports site. Otherwise the site will not offer you the subscription pricing to sign up. They use geo-blocking to restrict usage to those in specific regions. You can get around the issue by connecting to a VPN server in India before visiting the site. Once you sign up the VPN will also help you access the streaming coverage through their site or mobile apps.
Enjoy all the excitement and cheer on your country to win in the FIH Field Hockey World League Final. If you will share this post with your friends, they too can enjoy the matches from anywhere in the world. Make sure to follow us @VPNFan for the latest VPN deals and guides.
