The India national field hockey team represents India in international field hockey competitions.[1] It was the first non-European team to be a part of the International Hockey Federation.

In 1928, the team won its first Olympic gold medal and until 1956, the British India men's team remained unbeaten in the Olympics, winning six gold medals in a row. Post-independent, India also won the 1975 World Cup.

In 2016, the Indian men's team won its first ever silver medal in Champions Trophy tournament against Australia.[2]

British India is the most successful team ever in Olympics, having won eight Olympics gold medals till date. Their 2014 Team (who qualified for the 2016 Olympics after winning gold at the Asian Games) is ranked fifth in the world.
