A team can have at most 16 players, only 11 of which (including the goalkeeper, if there is one) can be on the field at any time.

Field Hockey is played by two teams. Each team is permitted to have 11 players on the field at any one time during gameplay, and 5 substitutes off the field. Squads consist of between 11 to 18 players depending on competition rules.

I read somewhere that their were over 3million hockey players in the world but i think there maybe more than that. as the 3 million mentioned are probably registered players and i know there maybe more because i know in this counrty alone there are some unregistered players and clubs so there must be more the world over. ANYONE CARE TO ADD OR TELL ME THE RIGHT FIGURE... it would be interesting to know.

Including the goalkeeper there are 11 players on the field at a time, but most teams have up to four reserves, so a maximum of 15 possible field players per game.

11 players can play on the field. Most teams have about 15 players.

1= goalie

3= defense

3=mid field

4= forward line

or

1= goalie

3=defense

5= forward line

Some people have different places where people are but these are the ones I have learned.

It's very difficult to have an exact number of players who play field hockey throughout the world as numbers vary from year to year.

It's estimated that over 3 million people play field hockey around the world on a regular basis.

In some Junior Games you play with 8 a-side and a goalie, but in senior hockey you play with 11 a-side and a goalie.

There have to be at least eleven people because that is the number of players on the field at once.
