1. Fixing of IISHF Title Events 2016
The IISHF Presidium (currently Erik Sommer and Ingo Goerke) has worked very hard during the last weeks to discuss with several NGBS and clubs the possible hosting of IISHF title events 2016. It was our big aim to complete many title events 2016 as possible and especially to fix the hosting in the previous year (which means here until end of November). We are very glad to officially announce the hosting of IISHF title events 2016 as follows:


U13 European Cup Kaarst (Germany) 18-19 June 2016

2. Vacant U19 European Cup 2016 - Application urgently requested
The U19 European Cup is very important and an event we normally do every year. Thus the IISHF Presidium would very much like to encourage all NMA's to consider hosting this event. Especially countries who haven't yet made any application for hosting Title Events in 2016 are kindly requested to assist.

We hereby ask all NMA's for the one remaining European Cup to provide an official formal application (date for April ? June both months included and not overlapping with other title events 2016) lately until 20 December 2015 to the IISHF Presidium. Please be aware that without application until 20 December 2015 the U19 European Cup 2016 will not take place.

3. Deadline for NMA`s to publish information
