Field hockey is among the oldest games that have been a part of Olympics history. The game was first introduced back in the 1908 summer games that happened in London. A total of six teams competed in the Olympics, including four teams from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Since then, the sport has consecutively remained a part of the Olympics, except for in 1912 and 1924.

In the early years, India was the dominant team in this sport, winning the gold medal seven times out of eight. This domination continued from 1928 to 1964. Later, Pakistan took over the gauntlet from India and became the most dominant team at the Olympics, winning three gold medals and three silver medals from 1956 to 1984.
