Germany won their first title after defeating Australia 2–1 in the final. Netherlands won the third place match by defeating South Korea 3–2 with a golden goal.

For this tournament, the participating nations were increased from the standard 12 (as in the 5 previous editions) to 16 and each squad could consist of 18 players instead of the normal 16 after the FIH considered the hot and humid conditions in Malaysia.

Qualification


Each of the continental champions from five confederations and the host nation received an automatic berth. The European confederation received one extra quota based upon the FIH World Rankings. Pakistan and England qualified as fourth and sixth team in final ranking at the 2000 Summer Olympics, completing the final line-up alongside the seven teams from the Qualifier.[1]
