why is hockey called our national game?

Field hockey was considered the national game of India, till recently India denied having bestowed any such title on the sport in reply to an act filed under Right to Information. India had showed unrivalled dominance over field hockey till the 1970's and won eight gold medals, accolades perhaps leading one to assume field hockey as being India's national game.
