World Cup Internet feature
gets great response
?
????

worldsport.com "the official home of world sport on the internet", had an overwhelming response to its World Cup coverage, which included extensive background information, up-to-the-minute results, selected live score updates, an extensive photo gallery, audio reports, and press releases. worldsport.com is the official Internet site for GAISF, the General Assembly of International Sports Federations.

worldsport.com was flooded with hundreds of emails giving feedback from around the world. Positive feedback came in from as far afield as Peru, Chile, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. The most prolific responders were the Australians and Americans, and there was great interest across Malaysia and India.

Many who couldn't be in Utrecht wrote that the site, with its extensive photo spreads, "was the next best thing" to being there [USA]. Others who were struggling for local coverage wrote, "thank goodness for the Internet" [Australia]. Also from Australia: "I'm delighted to see that the FIH is managing to extensively pubicise hockey tournaments on the Internet. It comes as a great respite to all us hockey lovers".

While the FIH maintains its own site where World Cup results and official FIH news were updated on a daily basis, the FIH was pleased to work in co-operation with worldsport.com for this special World Cup feature. The Hockey World Cup archives will stay online at worldsport.com indefinitely and will be a superb memory of a fantastic 13 days of hockey action.
