The 26th edition of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup (SAS) men’s invitational field hockey tournament will kick off at Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium in Ipoh on 29th April, 2017.

While last year’s silver jubilee edition managed to attract the participation of seven teams, we will only be seeing six this year. They are defending champions Australia (world #2), India (#6), Great Britain (#7), New Zealand (#8), Japan (#16), and of course, host Malaysia (#14).
