Ice hockey: One of the very elaborate sport

If football is dubbed the King sport of the Summer Olympics, ice hockey also occupies a similar position during the Winter Olympics.


Long-standing origin

There are many theories about the advent of hockey but so far the majority still believe that this sport comes from an ancient Greek game called “keritizein”. From the end of the 18th century, hockey was gradually improved by the British until it became a unified whole as the present.

According to the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) regulations, the standard game field must meet the basic requirement of size 60.98x30m. The rules are quite simple with each 6-player team using skateboard sticks (made of wood, aluminum or synthetic plastic) to hit the ball into the opponent’s net. The match lasts 60 minutes and is divided equally into 3 rounds without time off. The team that takes the ball into the opponent’s net more will win. The big difference between hockey versus football is that there is no time limit and the number of substitutions in each game. Half-time breaks last from 15 minutes 30 seconds to 17 minutes.
