3. No Veterans or Women European Cup 2020
The IISHF Veterans European Cup or IISHF Women European Cup will not take place in 2020 due to lack of applications from the NMA's. This is unfortunately. Any NMA willing to host a B-Event (Non Title Event) for these two age groups is very welcome to organize such an Event.

4. Team information for IISHF Title Events 2020
Each National Member Association must according to the IISHF Regulations inform the IISHF latest on the 15th of December each year of the
- team names
- contact person
- full team list
- contact address (e-mail and mobile phone)
of the National Champion and National Vice Champion and any Host with Wild Card Teams for U19, U16 and U13 for that year. The same applies for the third and fourth place team in each category as possible back up teams.

For the Veteran, Men and Women National Champion (including Men Cup Champion) and National Vice Champion (including Men Vice Cup Champion) and any Host with Wild Card or defending European Cup Title Holder in those age groups the Team names, contact person and contact address (e-mail and mobile phone) should be provided. The same applies for the third and fourth place team in each category as possible back up teams.

Please use the attached Excel file to report your team information. Please report "not participating or not relevant" where you have no teams participating or hosting or defending a championship.

Please also report contact information for your National Men and U19 team.

For all teams please also report if you know if the team would be ready for participation since this will enhance our selection process. Please respond either Yes, No or perhaps/not sure yet.

Please also report your teams for the Women and Veteran age category despite that there will not be any IISHF Title Events in 2020 for these two categories. The information is still useful for any potential hosts of international B-events.

5. Regarding participation at the Men Challenge Cup 2020
For the Men Challenge Cup only the hosting club can participate in both the Men European Cup and the Men Challenge Cup using the same team and the same individual players. For the Men Challenge Cup in addition the hosting club for the Men European Cup can also participate in both the Men European Cup and the Men Challenge Cup if qualified for both events but only if they use different players in the two events.

Please note that these are the current rules within the IISHF Regulations which will be up for evaluation for possible modification at the IISHF AGM 2020. In general IISHF encourage any club participating in both events if qualified to use different players in the two events since the intention for the IISHF Men Challenge Cup is primarily to be an alternative for those Men Senior teams who willing or ready to compete at the highest level but prefer to compete on a second level.
