Hockey had been held at the 1908 Olympics but was not contested in 1912 at Stockholm. It returned to the Olympic Program in 1920. It was not held at the 1924 Olympics but has been a constant Olympic sport since 1928. The 1920 hockey tournament was held at the [Olympisch Stadion], the main Olympic Stadium in Antwerpen. Little else is known about the event, with only four nations competing in a round-robin tournament, and Great Britain winning the tournament easily.
