The 1928 Summer Olympics saw the third field Hockey tournament at Olympics. All games took place either in the new Olympisch Stadion or in the nearby Old Stadion. The field hockey tournament was held (together with football) in the first part of this Olympic games. All matches were played between Thursday, May 17 and Saturday, May 26, 1928.

The entry rules allowed one team from each country. And one team was allowed to include 22 players, which means two complete teams. The "Fédération Internationale de Hockey" defined the amateur status as follows: An amateur is one who has never obtained any profit by practising the sport, neither directly or indirectly. If a player or an official accepts from club, association, or federation an amount exceeding what is strictly necessary for travelling and hotel expenses, such an amount will be regarded as profit.

Only a men's competition occurred that year. Nine nations competed, after the retirement of Czechoslovakia.

Note: The players above the line played at least one game in this tournament, the players below the line were probably only squad members. Nevertheless the International Olympic Committee medal database exclusively credits them all as medalists. If or why they could have received medals is uncertain. However the National Olympic Committee of the Netherlands did not even show the Dutch players as competitors.
