which include an up-to-date doping centre, one conference room each,
medical centre and physio room. In addition, journalists and media
crew will find the Press Centre to be accommodating. The centre
can easily fit 100 journalists and comes equipped with a TV camera
platform, broadcasting room, post-match interview room and a media
lounge for relaxation.
The Stadium 1 Royal Box exhibits exquisite furnishing and this
puts the room on top of the quality scale. Its cozy interior makes
match watching more interesting and entertaining.
National Hockey Stadium 2, dedicated to cater for training stints
is an Astroturf 90 playing pitch, is capable of accommodating 2,000
seated audience of which 1,000 are covered seating.
