    No Thailand or Kuwait in the Men’s event both preferring the WC. Good to see Oman are planning to return. India are doubtful as usual, presumably due to lack of money.

    Interesting to see that Chinese Taipei are fielding their Women's team this year, with their Women's U18 moving into the World Championship program.

    The Women's U18 team won the competition last year so do we think the Women's team will be stronger then their U18 team or about the same?

    Taiwan's senior women's team is playing in World Championship Division IIB (they finished 2nd last year), so I'd expect them to be stronger.

    In 2016, Taiwan's senior team took part in the Challenge Cup of Asia:

    Taiwan U-18 results (2018)
    5-3 v Thailand (Taiwan senior beat Thailand 8-1 in 2016)
    12-1 v Singapore (Taiwan senior won 15-1 v Singapore in 2016)

    Taiwan's senior team was stronger against the same opponents.

    2019 U20 Challenge Cup of Asia, final standings:
    Malaysia
    Kyrgyzstan
    Philippines
    UAE

    2019 U20 Challenge Cup of Asia, Division 1, final standings:
    Thailand
    Mongolia
    Indonesia
    Kuwait

    The Thai destroyed their competition beating Mongolia 14-1, Indonesia 15-0 and annihilating Kuwait 25-0. Good for them. I am happy that they are progressing in Asia.

    Congrats to hosts and top group winners, Malaysia

    https://www.iihf.com/en/static/5456/asia

    Would have liked to see more close competitive games but nonetheless good to see eight teams compete. Pity they didn’t have a play-off format that would have allowed Thailand to challenge Malaysia and Kyrgyzstan.

    Next week one of my favourite events starts in Kuala Lumpur :

    https://www.iihf.com/en/events/2019/ccam

    Just 7 teams in the CCoA this year, Mongolia ( last year’s winner ), Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Macau, Oman and Indonesia.

    Only Macau has competed in all 12 events, which started in 2008.

    15 national teams have competed in this time. Chinese Taipei, UAE, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Thailand and Kyrgyzstan have all moved on to compete in the World Championships. India and Qatar are unable to field a team currently.

    Hope it is a very successful event.

    First two games played today.

    Indonesia 3 Oman 2

    First game between these two. They meet again in two days time. They are likely to finish in the last two places but still have chances to upset Macau in the remainder of Group B qualification.

    Malaysia 6 Singapore 2

    Good win in Group A, from behind, for the hosts against long time close rivals. Probably the third and fourth strongest teams so could meet again in the playoffs going for third place.

    Day 2 results

    Indonesia 6 Macau 3

    A second win for Indonesia which should ensure they get a Quarter Final spot.

    Philippines 7 Singapore 4

    A closer game than expected which will give Malaysia hopes of getting into the top two.

    Day 3 results

    Indonesia 6 Oman 5

    Third win for Indonesia who are now almost certain to win Group B and will probably meet Singapore in a quarter final. Another one goal defeat for Oman who will hope to get the better of Macau and win a quarterfinal spot themselves.

    Mongolia 9 Malaysia 5

    Good start for Mongolia who will win Group A if they defeat Philippines and Singapore and progress direct to the semifinals. Malaysia need to beat Philippines to get a direct place in the semifinals.

    Day 4

    Macau 6 Oman 1

    Stronger showing by Macau which should ensure a quarterfinal place and ensure Oman miss out and finish last.

    Mongolia 13 Singapore 3

    Singapore finish last in Group A and head for a quarterfinal against, probably, Indonesia. Mongolia look strong favourites to retain title

    Day 5

    Macau 4 Indonesia 3

    Revenge win for Macau but they still finish behind Indonesia and will play Malaysia in the quarterfinals. Oman play their last game tomorrow before going home.

    Philippines 7 Malaysia 4

    Philippines clinch a direct route to the semifinals and play group decider against Mongolia tomorrow.

    Day 6 the last day of qualification

    Oman 7 Macau 1

    An easy win for Oman which makes no difference to the standings. At least they got this one victory for their efforts. Macau will need to be more motivated for their quarterfinal against Malaysia if they are to avoid a very heavy defeat.

    Philippines 6 Mongolia 3

    Philippines tops the group and gets the easier semifinal against Singapore or Indonesia. Mongolia will probably play Malaysia. Last year the Philippines won this same match 6-5 but Mongolia won the title after better results against Thailand. A repeat contest between the two is likely in this year’s final.

    Day 9 finals

    Singapore 4 Malaysia 0

    First time in the top three for Singapore at the 10th attempt. A surprise reversal of recent results between these two teams. Disappointing end for hosts Malaysia. SE Asia Games next in November.

    Mongolia 6 Philippines 3

    Holders retain the title turning around the preliminary round result. Their first win against Philippines at the third attempt.

    Looks like a very successful event, congratulations to all competitors and organisers.

    Hopefully some new teams will compete in future and India and Qatar will find a way of restarting their national teams. Nepal is the only Asian IIHF member never to have competed.

    The men's teams were down from nine last year to seven this year with Thailand and Kuwait moving to the Worlds and India not showing. Is there any risk of more teams making the jump to the Worlds or are none of them eligible with their current setup (eg Mongolia's lack of ice rink IIRC). Or has the World Championships capped out with the number of teams?

    The IIHF has always seen this a feeder competition into the WC and it has been very successful. Philippines and Malaysia could move up but I hope they don’t move on too quickly and kill off the CCoA.
