HistoryEdit

In June 2008, UAE took part in the inaugural Arab Cup of Ice Hockey in Abu Dhabi, also involving the national teams of Algeria, Morocco and Kuwait. UAE went on to finish first in the standings and won the gold medal after defeating Kuwait 4-1. UAE won gold in the 2009 IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia.

In 2010, the team became the first from an Arab nation to play in the IIHF World Championships when they participated in the IIHF Division III World Championship.[1] Although the team was not ranked in the world rankings, they played against Ireland, Luxembourg, and Greece, and finished fourth in the group with a record of four losses. New head coach is Teemu Taruvuori (from Finland). In May they participated in the Kuwaiti organised Gulf Ice Hockey Championship, finishing first after winning all three of their games.[2]
