Japan’s Participation in FIH Hockey Men’s World Cup 2023


On January 13, FIH Hockey Men’s World Cup 2023 inaugurated in Odisha, in which Japan participated. It is the first time in 16 years and fifth time for Japan to have quailed for the World Cup. 

Unfortunately, Japan was defeated 3-0 by Germany in their first match in January 14. Acting Consul General Yamasaki cheered up the Japanese team members. We hope the Japanese team will achieve the goal of becoming the top eight in this tournament.
