6. Regarding U16 European Cup 2013 in Israel
Israel has applied to host the U16 European Cup 2013 in Kfar Saba on 15-16 June 2013. No other application for hosting this title event has been made to IISHF within the given deadline. The application from Israel meets the given requirements and this title event has now been sanctioned.

The IISHF Presidium is very well aware that for many teams it might be fairly expensive and somewhat problematic to travel to Israel in order to participate in an IISHF Title Event but Israel is an active member of IISHF and they are entitled like any other member to host IISHF Title Events. IISHF also encourage it?s member countries to take on their responsibility and host events.

The IISHF Presidium is at the same time aware of the current politicial situation in Israel and we can never ensure that nothing extra ordinary might happen during an IISHF Title Events nor in Israel or in any other place now or in June 2013. For your information the current political evaluation of the situation as given for example by the Foreign Commonwealth updated latest 30 November 2012 can be read here: www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/travel-advice-by-country/middle-east-north-africa/israel-occupied. Kfar Saba is located North East of Tel-Aviv (maps.google.dk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl).

It's up to each qualified teams including backup teams to make their own decision if they will participate or not. The answer has to be provided to IISHF by the NMA's within the given deadline.
Finally the current requirement for hosting an IISHF Title Events for club teams is that minimum teams from at least 3 IISHF member countries take part. There is for the moment no minimum requirement for the number of teams but typically there should be expected minimum 8 club teams for an European Cup.

7. Regarding Old Boys European Cup 2013 in Denmark
The first ever Old Boys European Cup will be hosted in Rødovre, Denmark on 19-21 July 2013. To our knowledge only Denmark currently has a National Old Boys Championship. The Danish Old Boys Champion in the 2012 season was Copenhagen Vikings who will host the European Cup with El Diablo as the Vice-Champion in Denmark last season.

Each NMA should please select the 2 or 3 best Old Boys club teams in their country if possible and provide IISHF with the team information within the given deadline. All players playing for a club teams have to have a valid license for the specific club and meet the age requirements given in the IISHF Rules of the Game. No combination teams will be allowed to participate in any IISHF Title Event.

Thank you very much for your good cooperation and assistance.

On behalf of the IISHF Presidium

Erik Sommer (President)
Jean-Daniel Muller (Vice President) Ingo Goerke (Finance Director)
