The UAE ice hockey team is the national ice hockey team of the United Arab Emirates. The team is operated under the UAE Ice Hockey Association, a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation.
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.
