New Delhi: The unprecedented success of the inaugural Hockey India League has prompted the national federation (HI) to plan a similar franchise-based event for the women players in future.
"The success of HIL has made us think of planning a league for the women players. It will be a big boost for women's hockey. We are thinking of starting the league in two years but everything is in planning stage now," HI secretary general Narinder Batra said in New Delhi on Friday.
Informing about the women's league, Batra said the tournament will be a six-a-side affair and will run along side the HIL.
