The Nederlandse IJshockey Bond ("NIJB", English: Netherlands Ice Hockey Association) is the official governing body of ice hockey in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1933 as a three team league with The Hague, Amsterdam and Tilburg. It joined the International Ice Hockey Federation in 1935. In 1946, it created the Eredivisie.
It is now the governing body for four divisions: The Eredivisie ("Premier league"-- professional); the Eerste Divisie ("first division"-- amateur); and the 2nd and 3rd divisions (recreational). It also governs the Dutch national men's ice hockey team and the Dutch national women's ice hockey team.
