We are a friendly, mainly expat hockey club formed in October 2011, by a group of players who wanted to take expat hockey in Oman to a more organised level.
As Non-Omanis are not permitted to play in the Omani National Hockey League, there are some clubs aimed at expats so that they can continue playing field hockey whilst living in this beautiful city.
Back in 2009, small pockets of expats began playing some hockey on the new astroturf pitch at the British School Muscat, to help raise money for a set of floodlights. By 2011, this group had grown into a consistant weekly gathering of players, and regular games were organised against our friends from a local Indian expat club.
The idea to formalise the club was concieved in the Duke's Bar in the Crowne Plaza Hotel after a good victory over a visiting Navy team. By late 2011, we were set up as the Muscat Arabian Foxes Hockey Club complete with Committee, club kit, and regular fixtures.
In August 2012 we announced a sponsorship deal with the Grand Hyatt Hotel for the 2012-2013 season, and introduced a club membership scheme which offers great benefits to those affiliated with the club. The Hyatt continue to sponsor us and host us for drinks after matches.
We offer free hockey sessions for 6-16 year olds every week as part of our strong affiliation with the British School.
We are growing all the time and currently have over 50 playing members (male and female). Some of the nationalities represented include Britain, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, South Africa, Oman, Pakistan and India.
