1.    Deadline for Team Information from all Teams participating in European Cups 2023.

We hereby officially announce that according to point §12.1 IISHF Constitution the IISHF Presidium has imposed an official deadline for all Teams participating in European Cups 2023 to send the following material. Deadline is 8 weeks before each event.

The complete team information has to be sent by e-mail to the hosting club (use the contact information given on with a copy (!!) to the IISHF Event Office (mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Failure will result in fixed fines (50 EUR per week of delay) also for not sending a copy to IISHF.

Deadlines fixed for the following European Cups 2023:

The requested team information and the deadline applies for all participating teams even for the hosting club since IISHF needs to get a copy of the team information from all participating teams. The requested team information should still be delivered even if any hosting club has contacted the participating teams directly prior to this IISHF Communication Letter.

Please transfer this information a.s.a.p. to your teams participating. In case of any questions to accommodation and organisation, the teams shall please contact the relevant Event Directors as mentioned in the Tournament Rules.

Please also pay attention that each National Member Association has to send not later than two weeks before each IISHF Title Event the completed and approved International Team Certificate (ITC) of all its teams to the IISHF ITC Manager (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). The ITC 2023 version has to be used when it will be made available on and/or in an coming IISHF Communication Letter.

The Time Schedules and Tournament Rules will be sent out with a following IISHF Communication Letter in due time befort the IISHF Title Events.
