Field Hockey…Did you know? 

Field hockey is played in more than 100 countries around the globe, making it one of the largest team sports in the world. 

The origins of field hockey can be traced back nearly 3,000 years to the Greek classical era. Ancient drawings on Egyptian tombs suggest that field hockey was the very first stick-and-ball sport.  

When the British Empire expanded in the 18th century, British soldiers carried the game of field hockey with them around the globe. 

Field hockey is the national sport of Pakistan and India.  

Field hockey first entered the modern Olympic games in 1908 as a men’s event. It was not added as a women’s event until 1980. 

Men in the U.S. have played the sport since 1928, however, field hockey is predominantly a women’s sport in this country. 

In the U.S. there are now 275 colleges and universities with women’s field hockey programs.
