Bhubaneswar: Odisha is gearing up to host another Hockey World Cup.

With less than eight months to go for the 2023 FIH Men’s World Cup, preparations at the two venues – Bhubaneswar and Rourkela – are in full swing.

The Birsa Munda International Hockey Stadium – the biggest hockey facility in India — is being constructed in Rourkela.

The Kalinga Stadium in the state’s capital, on the other hand, is getting a facelift ahead of the mega event.

Work is underway to lay a brand new astroturf at the magnificent complex in Bhubaneswar. The old synthetic turf was removed at Kalinga Stadium last month

Watch the turf being laid at Kalinga Stadium:

Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik unveiled the 2023 World Cup logo last month at an event held at the Kalinga Stadium.

The tournament will be held from January 13-29, 2023.

The Kalinga Stadium had hosted the 2018 FIH Men’s World Cup as well as the FIH Junior World Cup hockey meet last year.
