Renumeration for Indian Hockey players
by S Shrikanth on Mar 06, 2010 08:17 AM

The newspaper HT, New Delhi edition has exposed the renumeration system for Indian National hockey players that was upgraded a month before the World Cup.

1. For playing in World Cup and Olympics - Rs 10,000/match.
2. For playing International match - Rs 5000/match.

If a hockey player plays average 50 International matches (including Olympics, WC, Champions trophy) a year, he would maximum earn Rs 3-3.5 lakhs/year for playing for Indian National hockey team.

Contrary to this Spanish captain Pablo Amat earns $16m (Rs 75 Crore)/year from hockey. Hockey players in Germany, Australia and Holland earn between $2m-$14m from playing hockey.
