Default International Hockey Federation

The International Hockey Federation (Fédération Internationale de Hockey sur Gazon, or FIH) is the global governing body of field hockey. Its headquarters are located in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The FIH was founded on January 7, 1924 in Paris by Paul Léautey, who became the first president, in response to field hockey's omission from the programme of the 1924 Summer Olympics. The seven founding members were Austria, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, France, Hungary, Spain and Switzerland. The FIH soon grew to have many members and achieve international recognition. In 1982, the FIH merged with the IFWHA (International Federation of Women's Hockey Associations), which had been founded in 1927 by Australia, Denmark, England, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, the United States and Wales.

The organisation is based in Lausanne since 2005, having moved from Brussels. The current president is Leandro Negre from Spain, who was elected on November 29, 2008 in Los Angeles, California.
