The event is organized and managed by the International Hockey Federation (FIH). The first edition of the men's hockey World Cup was played in 1971 and has completed 14 editions so far. 


Pakistan is the most successful team in the tournament, having clinched four World Cup titles. The Netherlands and Australia are behind the Asian nation, with both hockey powerhouses winning the trophy three times each. Germany has lifted the cup twice, while India and Belgium have won it once in history.  



2023 Men’s Hockey World Cup


The 2023 Men’s Hockey World Cup will be the 15th edition of the quadrennial world championship event. It is scheduled from January 13 to January 29 in India.
