The Federacion Venezolana de Hockey informed the Pan American Hockey Federation on March 2 that political unrest in the country could affect the course of the competition and jeopardize the safety of participants in the 2nd Indoor Pan American Cups scheduled to be played in Valencia, Venezuela, March 18 - 21, 2004.

Based on this advice, the Pan American Hockey Federation decided to cancel this competition, while thanking the local organizers and the Federacion Venezolana de Hockey for their efforts to arrange this event. The PAHF hopes to re-schedule the 2nd Indoor Pan American Cup at a later date in 2004.

The Pan American Hockey Federation (PAHF) is recognized by the FIH as the governing continental federation for all field hockey in the Pan American region. There are 21 member Nations of the PAHF. For more information please contact or visit our web site.
