Hockey is an internationally accepted game. There is a Hockey world cup and is also a part of list of games played in Olympics. In earlier years hockey was always praised and liked by everyone. The notable players like Dhyanchand were the gems of Hockey. Their talent were appreciated by the greats like Adolf Hitler as well. In one game Hitler proposed Dhyanchand as the citizenship of country.

Hockey has many variants evolved over a period of time. There is a choice of Ice hockey which is played with less player as compared to the original game of hockey but the turf here is ice. There are many movies also specially made on the game of Ice Hockey. Then there in Inline Hockey which is also a variant of Hockey. Hockey as a game is not appreciated by people and its viewership has reduced.

According to many hockey is a boring game and they would be interested to watch soccer instead. For many youngster as this sport is not played in their school or stadium this is not interesting.
