Games of hockey have been played around the world for thousands of years, all developed independently by peoples as far apart as the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Chinese and Aztecs. The modern game of field hockey was created in London, England, while ice hockey began in Canada (the exact place is disputed by several groups).

First Confirmed game of ice hockey or a variation of field hockey was played in Kingston Ontario Canada in 1843 by British Troops although unconfirmed games of ice hockey had been played in Britain around 1820's
