    Andorra 2017

    Just seen on Facebook that Ireland are putting together a team to play in Andorra starting 29/9/17. Portugal and Morocco also playing plus the hosts.

    Well done to those who've put this together.

    Details now on NToIH. Now known as the Development Cup, with plans to be an annual event and more countries competing. Sounds great.

    Hopefully develop into something similar to the Challenge Cup of Asia and hopefully with some support from the IIHF, even if just some basic coverage like they do for the Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament.

    Yes that would be great although the squads will not meet IIHF eligibility criteria at this stage. Some of the organisers are disappointed that the IIHF has not been more supportive but hopefully that can be improved.

    Argentina wished to participate this year but wasn't able to put a team together for it. Greece, Brasil and Armenia are considering joining in as well in the future.

    Saw that Rene Fasel had a meeting with the Armenian President recently. Don't really like to see politicians getting involved in sport but presumably it means Armenia will soon be putting a team together.
