The recent triumph of the Indian men’s and women’s hockey teams in the Tokyo Olympics revived the passion for field hockey sport in the country.

As a result, Hockey India has announced that Big Bang Media Ventures Pvt. Ltd  (BBMVPL). has acquired the rights to Hockey India. This is an important step in the process of reviving the Hockey India League because BBMVPL will serve as its official commercial and marketing partner agency.
