BANGKOK, 12 April 2012 (NNT) – President of the Ice Hockey Association of Thailand M.L. Krisada Kasemsunt revealed that he will propose Thailand as the next host of the Hyatt Challenge Cup of Asia 2013.

According to the President, if the effort is a success, it will be the first time that Thailand plays host to an international ice hockey competition.

M.L. Krisada said since Thai national hockey teams have just won two international matches in Asia, one in the under-18 category and the other in the adult category, it is a good opportunity for Thailand to propose itself as host to the international championship in 2013. The proposal will be forwarded to the International Ice Hockey Federation when it convenes a conference in May this year.
