Interesting Facts about Hockey and the Olympics

  • Men's Hockey made its debut at the London 1908 Games.
  • The first women's Olympic Hockey competition was held at the Moscow 1980 Olympic Games.
  • The hockey pitches are 91.4m long and 55m wide.
  • Each goal is surrounded by a D-shaped shooting circle. The penalty spot at either end is 6.4m from the goal.
  • The goals at each end are 3.66m wide and 2.14m high.
  • Until the 1970s, hockey was always played on grass. However, top-level matches, including those at London 2012, now take place on water-based synthetic-turf pitches, which allow the ball to roll more smoothly and quickly.
  • For the first time ever at the Olympic Games, the London 2012 hockey pitch is blue, rather than green.
