Tatarstan to create the Islamic Hockey League

Kazan, February 15, 2022

Andrey Ryabov, vice-president of the Ice Hockey Federation of the Republic of Tatarstan, announced the project for the World Islamic Hockey League to be developed.

“We came up with the idea of ​​creating an Islamic hockey league in Tatarstan. I already have documents to start the initiative, even the draft charter. I have been repeatedly told that Muslims from different countries are ready to participate. We see a great demand, but so far we have nothing concrete. We are negotiating with 20 states,” Ryabov was quoted as saying by Tatar-inform.

The sports official also noted the difficulties with the finance. According to him, hockey is a rather expensive sport. Therefore, it is wrong to charge the costs of organizing the tournament to the republic, and that it will first be necessary to work out the economic basis of the competition.
