The Hockey Champions Trophy is an international field hockey tournament held by the International Hockey Federation. Founded in 1978 by Pakistan’s Air Marshal Nur Khan and the Pakistan Hockey Federation, it features the world’s top-ranked field hockey teams competing in a round robin format. A biennial women’s tournament was added in 1987. The Champions Trophy was changed from an annual to a biennial event from 2014 onwards, due to the introduction of the Hockey World League (Source Wiki).
