Description:
The Belgium national field hockey team represents Belgium in the international field hockey competitions. The team was coached by Adam Commens until end of 2010 and will be replaced ad interim by Colin Batch as Adam Commens has been appointed coach of the Australian women's national team. Commens has been coach of Belgium's national men's team since 2007, and led them to their first Olympics appearance in 32 years when the team competed in Beijing in 2008. He will begin his role with the Hockeyroos early 2011.

After the 2007 Champions Challenge, hosted in their own country, they ended at the last (sixth) place. This prompted coach Gilles Bonnet and his assistant-coach Pascal Kina to be replaced by current coach Adam Commens and assistant Murray Richards.

Between 1920 and 1978, Belgium appeared in two of the first three World Cups and in eleven out of thirteen Summer Olympics.

Belgium first played hockey in 1902 and their first club was formed two years later. In 1907, several clubs established the Belgian Hockey Association. Belgium played its first international match against Germany, and was one of the founding members of the International Hockey Federation (FIH).
