    Wow, didn't expect Kuwait or Turkmenistan. Kuwait have been poor in recent years and it is hard to see why they want to play in the IHWC. Perhaps it's just a warm up for the CCoA. Turkmenistan seem to be ambitious and did well at the AWG. I'd expected them to play in the CCoA and sort out any IIHF eligibility issues before entering the IHWC.

    Pity about Bosnia, perhaps they could get some sort of event organised with Macedonia, Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Money and an ice pad would be big problems though !

    Cheers

    Turkmenistan has the support of their dictatorial president, who said a few years ago he wants them to develop hockey. With it being of the calibre of North Korea, just with money from natural gas, it's possible for them to finance something like that. Which is also why Kyrgyzstan hasn't yet; they are a very poor country and don't have the money to spend on another tournament, unfortunately.

    Think Namibia chose to play just inline and stay with the FIRS organisation.
