Glasgow Green Hockey Centre July 24 to August 3


Hockey is a fast-moving game which requires high levels of coordination and teamwork.

Glasgow 2014 will see 10 nations compete in men's and women's events, with two groups of five competing against each other to the knock-out stages with the top two teams playing for gold.

The Big Event

Australia have won every gold medal in the men's event since the introduction of the sport in 1998, but the likes of India, Pakistan and England will be snapping at their heels.

Don't miss

Both India and Pakistan love hockey, and the neighbours are committed players and rivals in both the men's and women's events.

Scot to watch

Chris Grassick, from Midlothian is part of the Great Britain squad and has earned 50 caps so far.

Emily Maguire is one of Scotland's stand-out talents. The 25-year-old made from Paisley made her Team GB debut in 2012, helping the team secure an historic bronze medal.
