Women's Hockey World Cup


Women's Hockey World Cup

The Women's Hockey World Cup is the field hockey World Cup competition for women, whose format for qualification and final tournament is similar to the men's. It has been held since 1974. The tournament has been organised by the International Hockey Federation (IHF) since they took over the role from the International Federation of Women's Hockey Associations (IFWHA) in 1983. Since 1986, it has been held regularly once every four years, in the same year as the men's competition.

Of the ten tournaments held so far, only four teams have won the event. Netherlands is the most successful team, having won the title six times. Germany and Australia are joint second best teams, having each won the title twice. Argentina is the only other country who has won the tournament. So far, Netherlands and Australia are the two champions able to defend their titles. At the end of the 2006 world cup, fourteen nations had reached the semifinal of the tournament.

The 2006 Women's World Hockey Cup was held in Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, Madrid, Spain from September 27 to October 8, 2006. The next Women's Hockey World Cup will be held in 2010 in Argentina.
