[img_assist|nid=8647|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=220|height=220]The Africa Cup of Nations hockey tournament, which was postponed just days before it started due to the terrorist attack in Nairobi, Kenya in the last week of September, will now be played from November 18 to 24 in the east African city.

The new date was announced by the African Hockey Federation on Thursday.

The men’s and women’s national teams that win the Africa Cup in Nairobi will qualify as the African continent’s representatives at the 2014 Hockey World Cup. The four-yearly showpiece is due to be held in The Hague, Netherlands in June next year.
