Off Sides. Field hockey in Morocco

After ice hockey started to be played in Morocco, the Czech Republic embassy thought of a good idea to promote this traditional Czech sport in the country: a cultural exchange.

From there, the idea was born for a Czech Republic teenage ice hockey team to travel to Morocco for friendly matches on an ice rink. But soon, the different realities of the two countries emerge on their own.
