Breaking news – Ban on hockey lifted

Following the controversial warnings in December from the Spanish Hockey Federation stating no Spanish hockey club could play with Gibraltarian players or participate in any form of matches in which Gibraltar could take part, CoreSportGib understands that officials in Spain have confirmed that the ban no longer exists.

According to informed sources involved in hockey representations made before the Spanish hockey federation in the past days have resulted in officials informing clubs that any Gibraltarian player can play in Spain. The same sources also indicate that Spanish Hockey Federation  officials have stated that Spanish clubs will not be prevented from playing friendly matches against Gibraltar teams.

The news comes after two days in which local hockey officials sources have mooted that the situation had been resolved but that there was as yet no official confirmation to this effect.
