The entry rules allowed one team from each country. And one team was allowed to include 22 players, which means two complete teams. The "Fédération Internationale de Hockey" defined the amateur status as follows: An amateur is one who has never obtained any profit by practising the sport, neither directly or indirectly. If a player or an official accepts from club, association, or federation an amount exceeding what is strictly necessary for travelling and hotel expenses, such an amount will be regarded as profit.

Only a men's competition occurred that year. Nine nations competed, after the retirement of Czechoslovakia.
