 IISHF Communication Letter 2018-03 StumbleUpon Toolbar
Title Holders participation at IISHF European Cups, Badgers B-Tournament
1. Title Holders participation at IISHF European Cups
The IISHF Regulations (version 2017) states the following in § 18.2:
Host Clubs of European Cup events and the Men and Women's European Cup Title Holders from the previous year are entitled to one wildcard place in the event provided that
a) The club has not already qualified.
b) The Team must be a first division team or granted permission by IISHF Presidium.

The definition of age groups/age limits are given in the IISHF Official Rule Book (version 2016/2017) in § 4.1: Age Limits:
4.1.1 SENIOR (WOMEN/MEN)
Lower Limit: A player who on completion of the current calendar year is 19 years of age or older.
4.1.2 VETERANS (WOMEN/MEN)
Lower Limit: A player who on completion of the current calendar year is 32 years of age or older.

We have received a question about the participation of Title Holders at IISHF European Cups. According to the IISHF Presidium the participation of Title Holders at IISHF European Cups includes the following three IISHF European Cups as listed in the ranking list distributed as attachment for the IISHF Communication Letter 2018-01 as of 5 January 2018:
- Men European Cup
- Men Cup Winners Cup
- Women European Cup.

However the IISHF Presidium acknowledges the fact that the wording used in § 4.1 IISHF Official Rule Book and in § 18.2 IISHF Regulations is somewhat confusing "senior (women/men) and veterans (women/men)" vs. "men and women" and for that reason the IISHF Presidium has decided the following:

1) To bring this matter up for clarification/better wording at the IISHF AGM 2018.
2) To offer as a special gesture the Title Holder from the IISHF Veterans European Cup 2017 the team SHC

Rolling Aventicum from Switzerland participation at the IISHF European Veterans Cup 2018. The event will if needed then be extended from 8 to 9 teams (this event was originally scheduled for 8 teams).

2. Badgers B-Tournament
Badgers Spaichingen in Germany is hosting their Men B-Tournament (Badgers Cup) on 20-22 May 2018. More information on www.iishf.com under "Tournaments".

On behalf of the IISHF Presidium
Erik Sommer (President)
