New Delhi: Hockey India (HI) paid a hosting fee of Rs.7.5 crore to the International Hockey Federation (FIH) against the Rs.2.5 crore agreed upon for the World Cup last year, former Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) chief K.P.S. Gill claimed Wednesday.
Gill was the president of IHF, which is no longer recognised by the world body, when FIH signed an Memorandum of Understanding to host the 2010 World Cup in India.
"When the IHF signed the MOU with the FIH for hosting the 2010 World Cup in Delhi the capitation fee that was agreed on was Rs.2.5 crore. But Mr. (Narinder) Batra (Hockey India's secretary general) revealed at a meeting three months ago that the amount was Rs.7.5 crore," Gill, now an IHF advisor, told reporters.
