HISTORY - Lebanon becomes a IIHF member

Today history was made when the IIHF approved Lebanon's application for membership. With the vote today, Lebanon joins the world hockey community and is ready to make its mark on the sport.

On behalf of the Lebanese Ice Hockey Federation I wish to thank all those who supported our effort, be it Lebanese government officials, IIHF members, LIHF board members, coaches, volunteers, managers, players, sponsors and our fans.

We also extend our warmest congratulations to the other countries gaining membership today. (Algeria, Colombia, Iran, and Uzbekistan).


Watch the historic moments as it happened.
