About 4000 years. But the modern form of field hockey has been around since the 19th century.

There have been some speculations that 4000 years old picture have been found of some form of field hockey, but the first "club" was created in 1849 in London. It entered the Olympic Games in 1928.
Field hockey was removed from the 1924 Games because there was no single international governing body for the sport. It was replaced to the Olpympics in 1928 when the FIH had been founded.

That depends on whether you are referring to Ice Hockey or Field Hockey. Soccer originated with the ancient game of Harpastum, played by the Roman Legions, while Ice Hockey was invented in Canada in the 19th Century. Field Hockey, on the other hand is known to have been played in Ancient Greece at the Olympic Games. There is a monument in the museum at Olympia which depicts two players with typical curved field hockey sticks in a face-off position and a ball between them.
