Hockey World Cup History

The idea of a Hockey World Cup was first brought forward by the Pakistan Hockey Federation after they successfully hosted a nine-nation Hockey tournament in 1969. Until then the Olympics was the only global level Hockey tournament.

The idea was backed immediately by India and the first Hockey World Cup took place in 1971 in Barcelona, Spain. Pakistan were supposed to be the host of the inaugural World Cup.

However, the Tournament was shifted to a different location because of political unrest in the country.

Pakistan, who were the first to introduce the idea of a Hockey World Cup, were also the nation that designed the trophy for the World Cup.

The initial design was a single-piece trophy which would be in the form of a gold and silver-plated hockey stick. However, the then President of the Pakistan Hockey Federation, K.M Azhar had different ideas.

Hockey World trophy physical description

The Hockey World Cup trophy includes a silver cup with intricate floral designs on it. On top of the cup is a globe of the world made up of Silver and Gold. Mounted on top of the globe is a model hockey stick and ball. Including the base, the trophy stands 650mm high, without the base the trophy is 120.85mm high. It weighs a total of 11,560g, which includes  895g of gold, 6,815g of silver, 350g of ivory and 3,500g of teak.

The trophy was designed by Bahsir Moojid and the work of constructing the trophy was carried out by the Pakistani Army. The trophy was then presented to Rene Frank, the then president of the International Hockey Federation (FIH).

In what turned out to be a perfect conclusion to the story, Pakistan went on to become the first winner of the Hockey World Cup. Thus becoming the first nation to lift the prestigious trophy that they helped create.
