    after their disappointing performance in the Olympic games qualifiers Singapore have performed poorly again to finish 6th behind Uzbekistan. Surely its time for some heads to roll in the SHF!

    Final, like in the last AHF Cup, is between Oman and Bangladesh with Taiwan and Sri Lanka fighting for 3rd/4th place.

    Nice to see Kazakhstan back in Men's hockey. Looking forward to seeing their ladies play here later in the year.

    any links to a website, what can you tell us about the tournamnet as it seems odd that you haven't mentioned India, Pakistan and Korea.

    It's the second tier of Asian hockey. Got the results from the AHF Facebook page.

    I'm guessing that the first tier is the Asian Champions Trophey then, seems to be a good comp then as it allows the second tier nations to get in some international games in tournament format.

    They really just need to improve thier website it has almost no information at all about current events.

    Agreed their website is very poor. Good to see the Kazakhs back. Many moons ago their top league team won European honours. But men's hockey collapsed completely there after the downfall of the ussr.

    My wife is Kazakh and we collected equipment for their u18 team when they were here for the junior cup. So happy to see them back.

    The first tier is either the Asia Cup or the Asian Games.
    The Asian Champions Trophy is only for the top 6 Nations from the said tournaments.
