New Delhi: The Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) is planning to host an international event in Chennai this year, along the lines of a three or four-nation format akin to the Sultan Azlan Shah Trophy.

The IHF intends to bring four to six teams to India and is working towards formulating a schedule. The Indian governing body will seek the Asian Hockey Federation's approval before making the final structure, according to a report published in Pakistani daily The News.

The Indian hockey team has three major international events lined up ahead of the tournament, if it gets the go-ahead - an India-Pakistan Test series, Sultan Azlan Shah Trophy and Champions Challenge in Belgium.
