The 2021 Tokyo Olympics will be A unique event for a number of reasons. Not only will the global event be held during a pandemic, but those involved will have to adhere to stringent protocols before and during the tournament.

There will also be no overseas spectators at the Tokyo Olympics. Local fans will be allowed to attend the event, with the number of spectators allowed into the stadium yet to be established.

One of the major attractions at the Tokyo Olympics will be field hockey. The sport brings colours to the stands and keeps everyone on the edge of their seats for the whole 60 minutes. The end-to-end action has always entertained fans at the global event.

At the Tokyo Olympics, 24 teams (12 in both the men's and women’s competitions) will be vying for top honours at the Oi Hockey Stadium. In each section, the teams have been divided into two groups of six teams each, with the top four at the end of the round-robin stage making it to the quarterfinals. Every win will fetch the teams three points at the Tokyo Olympics while a draw will get them just one.

India are the most successful side among the men's teams at the Olympics, with 11 medals, including eight gold. Arch-rivals Pakistan are second with eight medals, comprising of three golds and silvers each and two bronze medals.
