History[edit]

The first international game for the German women's national team took place on 3 December 1988 in Geretsried against Switzerland. The final score was 6–5 for the Swiss, but the Germans avenged the loss in their second match. Against the Swiss, the Germans obtained their first victory. Germany is currently ranked 11th in the world, despite having nine times more female hockey players than 5th-ranked Russia. Germany's best finishes at the Worlds were in 2001, 2005 and 2013, where they earned a fifth place finish on each occasion.
