HistoryEdit

In 1985 Kuwait joined the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) but were expelled in 1992 due to a lack of activity.[1][2] In 1999 Kuwait rejoined the IIHF and played their first games at the 1999 Asian Winter Games against Japan, China, and Mongolia, losing all three.[1] In 2007 they returned to international play at the 2007 Asian Winter Games where they recorded their first win against Macau. The following year they competed in the Arab Cup of Ice Hockey finishing second after losing to the United Arab Emirates in the final.[3] In 2010 Kuwait competed in their first IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia, finishing seventh overall.[4] In May they participated in the Kuwaiti organised Gulf Ice Hockey Championship, finishing second behind the United Arab Emirates.[5]
