The India national field hockey team is the national men's team representing field hockey in India, controlled by Hockey India, the governing body for field hockey in India. It is the first non-European team to be a part of the International Hockey Federation.

In 1928, the team won its first Olympic gold medal and until 1956, the Indian men's team remained unbeaten in the Olympics, winning six gold medals in a row. India also won the 1975 World Cup.

Having won eight Olympics gold medals till date, India is the most successful team ever in Olympics. It's sponsored by Sahara and Shiv-Naresh. Their 2014 Team (who qualified for the 2016 Olympics after winning gold at the Asian Games) is ranked ninth in the world.
