Indian hockey captain Manpreet Singh married girlfriend Illi Saddique
Indian hockey captain Manpreet Singh tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend from Malaysia, Illi Najwa Saddique on Wednesday at his native village in Jalandhar, Punjab. Manpreet and Illi were engaged as early as 2014, 2 years after their first meeting in Malaysia.
The two met during the 2012 Sultan Johor Cup Junior Hockey Tournament in Malaysia, when Manpreet was the captain of the Indian junior team. Manpreet and Illy were married at the GTB Nagar Gurdwara. Only relatives and close relatives could join the Corona epidemic in view.
Manpreet and Illi scheduled their wedding before the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 but the Covid-19 pandemic not just delayed the Games but their wedding too.
