History of hockey in Tunisia[]

The country's first ice rink is located at the Blue Ice complex in the Yasmine Hammamet resort. It opened in 2008.[1] The Tunisian Ice Hockey Association was created in 2009. It is headed by Ihab Ayed, a French-Tunisian player who is among the driving forces of ice hockey in the country. Becoming IIHF associate members by 2017 is listed among the association's long-term goals.[2]

The Tunisian National Team made its debut on June 14, 2014, taking on a French club team, the Coqs de Courbevoie. They were defeated 6-5.[3] Recruitment for the national team began back in 2006.

The 2009 IIHF Semi-Annual Congress was held in Tunis.
