    Qatar National Team ?

    Anyone know which event this was taken at ?

    I've never seen any record of Qatar competing as a national team ( they have missed both GCC events ).

    Thanks, great links. So it was Qatar v Qatar, I wonder who won. Interesting that there's an erroneous reference to Qatar competing in the 2011 AWG. Hopefully they will start playing at National Team level soon.

    Doing some digging around, it seems they have (or had, the last information I could find was 11/12 season) a league with 6 clubs so they seem to be on the right track. You know a lot about the AWG and Challenge Cup, you dont need to meet full IIHF requirements to play in those tournaments right? If so, hopefully they can do it in the next ~5 years.

    Qatar was planning to send a team to the 2011 AWG before their plans were cancelled.

    Qatar will enter the 2015 CCoA and apply to host Division 1. That will mean that all Asian members of the IIHF will have played in IIHF events.
