It would be great support to all the teams especially to players, if HKHA starts prize distribution ceremony in the presence of all the teams. It will equally be good to make mandatory the presence of all team along with their officials, so that winner gets more attractions. We all hope, a little step taken by HKHA would be a boon for Hockey to strengthen its root in Hong Kong.
