Ice hockey body review supported

April 8, 2023

The Culture, Sports & Tourism Bureau today reiterated that the Government supports the starting of the process to suspend the Hong Kong Ice Hockey Association’s (HKIHA) membership by the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China.
The Government also supports the committee’s request for the HKIHA to provide a full written explanation in relation to an incident concerning the playing of the wrong music as the national anthem of the People’s Republic of China, and submit a plan on improving corporate governance.
The bureau stressed that the Government and the committee have the same objective to discern the reason for the error and enhance the HKIHA’s corporate governance.
The government subsidy on ice hockey athletes’ training and competition will not be affected regardless of the final decision upon the investigation’s completion, the bureau added.
