The team’s win came after the Lebanese Ministry of Youth and Sport gave the Lebanese Ice Hockey Federation official accreditation in Lebanon. This made it the only official group representing Lebanese ice hockey players in the world.
This status also paves the way for the federation to apply to join the Lebanese Olympic Committee and the International Ice Hockey Federation. This would open the door to international matches, including the Olympics.
Our fingers are crossed for this amazing team representing Lebanon in Canada and the World!
