The history of field hockey dates back to the Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, Romans, and Arabs, where stick and ball games were first invented to play a game similar to hockey.

A similar sport called Hurling started during the 1st millennium BC in Ireland.

Men’s field hockey was first played as an Olympic Game in 1908.

Women started playing field hockey in the Olympic Games in1980’s.

Field Hockey is a popular sport for men and women in many countries around the world. It is the oldest known stick and ball game. It is a game in which players pass the ball down the field and attempt to score by putting the ball in a goal. Each team consists of eleven players: five forwards, three halfbacks, two fullbacks, and a goalkeeper. Each player uses a curved stick to advance a ball towards the opponent’s goal.

The objective of the game is to score more goals than the other team.

Unfortunately, Hockey being an amateur sport does not have much of a marketing appeal for the sponsors to enable it to sustain media coverage.

Of course, cricket is where the money is. Banks, mobile companies and all other major sponsors are into cricket.

The current generation grows up, they are bombarded through media with cricket.

Unfortunately, Hockey is neither in the memory of our youth nor is its artistry and excitement displayed on TV. There is simply no way that hockey – our national sport – can have a future with trends like this.
