QualificationEdit

The original plan was for a twelve-team tournament, divided into two round-robin groups of six, with the top two of each qualifying for the semi-finals.

However, nine of the twelve teams withdrew as part of the U.S.-led boycott in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Argentina, Kenya, Pakistan, Malaysia, and West Germany boycotted completely, and while Australia, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and New Zealand competed in some sports, their hockey governing bodies pulled out.

The organising committee subsequently reduced the competition to six teams, with Cuba and Tanzania representing the Americas and Africa in place of Argentina and Kenya respectively, and Poland wete invited as the next best team from the 1978 World Cup.
