All teams are put into one group, and will play each other once. The top four then move on to the semi-final – the team that finishes first in the group will take on the one that finishes fourth, and the second team plays the third. Winners of the semi-finals will move to the final

Defending Champions Japan will face a stiff challenge from Korea, the most decorated team in the history of the tournament, which have won three out of six editions of the tournament, in 2010, 2011, and 2016.

Hosts India have been in good form – particularly after winning bronze at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, and the winning the 2022 FIH Hockey Women’s Nations Cup in Spain. The hosts have also won the Asian Champions Trophy in 2016 and were runners-up in 2018.
