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 is typically a winter sport, but many countries also have their major leagues and competitions in the summer (because the winter is too cold, such as in Germany, and they play indoor instead).

Field hockey as a whole is a year-round sport, since countries on opposite sides of the world have autumn/winter at different times. A team may practise on the cold of winter, and then play a week later in the heat of summer, depending on their level and schedule.
