List of members of the International Ice Hockey Federation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The current members of the IIHF. (Red indicates full members, blue indicates associate members and green indicates affiliate members).

The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) is the worldwide governing body for ice hockey and inline hockey. It is based in Zurich, Switzerland, and maintains the international ice hockey rulebook, processes international player transfers, dictates officiating guidelines and is responsible for the management of international ice hockey tournaments. The IIHF was created on May 15, 1908, under the name (in French) Ligue Internationale de Hockey sur Glace (LIHG).[1] Belgium, France, Great Britain, Switzerland, and Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) were the founding members. The IIHF was composed entirely of European teams until 1920, when Canada and the United States joined.

Under the IIHF, there are three levels for member organizations. The highest level, and the only one in which members can vote at the IIHF Congresses, is the IIHF Full Members. These nations have their own independent hockey association, and regularly participate in the various IIHF-sanctioned World Championships. IIHF Associate Members is the second level. These nations either do not have their own independent hockey association, or have one, but have limited participation in the World Championships. The third level, IIHF Affiliate Members, is for nations that only participate in the Inline Hockey World Championships.[2]

As of 2017, there are 76 members: 54 full members, 21 associate members and one affiliate member. Indonesia, Nepal, and the Philippines are the newest members, all of whom joined on May 20, 2016. In 2017, there are 47 participated in the Men's World Championships, 37 participated in the Women's World Championships and 16 participated in the Inline Hockey World Championships.
