ABOUT THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES AND THE HOCKEY TOURNAMENT
The first Commonwealth Games was held in Hamilton, Canada in 1930. For the first years of its existence it was known as the ‘British Empire Games’, but in 1954 the name was changed to ‘British Empire and Commonwealth Games’, and in 1978 to simply the ‘Commonwealth Games’. The Games are held every four years, midway through the Olympic cycle. Often known as the ‘Friendly Games’, the events included have been expanded over the years but hockey was not added until 1998 in Kuala Lumpur. The results of previous hockey tournaments are shown below.
