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.
