History

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 Gulf Ice Hockey Championship, finishing first after winning all three of their games.[2]

Withdrawal from 2011 IIHF tournament

UAE decided to withdraw from the Division III tournament in Cape Town, South Africa because the UAE national team refused to compete against Israel, who was also in the tournament.
