Hockey at the Pacific Games (known as the South Pacific Games until 2009) was introduced as a tournament for men's teams in 1979.[1] Hockey was not played again until 2003 when a women's tournament was included in the schedule for Suva. At the 2015 Pacific Games in Port Moresby the format was changed from eleven-a-side to five-a-side, and both men's and women's tournaments were hosted.[2]
