GB Team History at the IISHF European Championships 


The BISHA Team GB have now competed in the IISHF U19’s European Championships for the last 10 years and have been proud to represent Great Britain in this prestigious event. We have com up against some of the strongest teams in Europe from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia, Denmark and Russia, but not been able to place in the top three, until 2019! 

In this tear we travelled to Lugano, Switzerland and battled with the Germans, Swiss and Austrians and won our place on the podium with the Bronze Medal for 3rd Place. This inspired players in the UK to train and try to be come part of the GB Team for the 2019 IISHF European Championships. 

Again, we found ourselves completing against the Germans, Swiss and Austrians and travelled to Krefeld for the 2019 Championships. We battled the Swiss in the Semi-Final and after leading for most of the game the Swiss U19’s took the win with a 5-4 result. This was a huge blow to our GB Players, and once again we found ourselves battling for 3rd place against a tough Austrian team, but again GB won out with our second 3rd place Bronze medal in 2 consecutive years. 

Sadly with the CoVID Pandemic, the 2020 European Championships were cancelled and teams had to wait for 2021. But with travel still uncertain, the Germans and Swiss chose not to travels to the UK for the IISHF 2021 European Championships and no champions was crowned!! 

So we look forward to resuming out competitive battles with the best Skater Hockey Nationals teams in Europe, who will all be traveling to the UK, for the IISHF 2022 European Championships.
