IIHF Member National Associations

ABOUT THE IIHF MEMBER STRUCTURE

The International Ice Hockey Federation has 72 member national associations. There are three categories of IIHF membership.

 

The first category is IIHF Full Member. These are the nations that have their own, independent, ice hockey association, separate from a winter sports federation, and they participate annually in the IIHF championship program.

 

The second category is IIHF Associate Member. These are nations that either do not have fully independent national associations or who have independent national associations, but participate to only a limited extent in IIHF championships.

 

Finally, there is IIHF Affiliate Membership, for those countries that only participate in IIHF InLine championships.

 

Only full members have voting rights at the IIHF Congresses.
