Field Hockey at the Olympics

Field hockey was first introduced at the Olympic Games for men in 1908 in London. It was subsequently removed from the Olympics at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games due to the lack of an international structure. It was back in 1928 after The International Hockey Federation (FIH) was founded.

Changes for 2016

For Rio 2016 the FIH have changed the structure of games, instead of two 35-minute halves, there will be 60-minute games broken into four quarters. After the first and third quarters each team will have a two-minute break, with a 10-minute break at half-time.
