Women’s FIH Hockey World Cup History, Format, Number of Teams, And Other Details

The Women’s Hockey World Cup is the field hockey World Cup competition for women, and it follows a similar structure to the men’s competition for qualifying and the final tournament. It’s been going on since 1974. Since their 1982 merger with the International Federation of Women’s Hockey Associations (IFWHA), the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has been in charge of organising the competition. Since 1986, it has been conducted every four years, concurrently with the men’s competition and in the interim year between the Summer Olympic Games.

The tournament’s size has evolved throughout time. The smallest World Cups, in 1974 and 1978, had 10 participating nations; the next highest, in 2002, had 16 participating nations; while the last seven World Cups have all had 12 participating nations. In 2018, the World Cup was once more increased to 16 teams, and the FIH will consider the same format in 2022.

The 2018 competition was held in London, England from July 21 to August 5, and the Netherlands won a record-tying eighth title after defeating Ireland 6-0 in the championship match.
