📢🏆🎉 Major event announcement! | Turkmen Ice Hockey League (PSL) 2018 🎉🏆📢


It is with great excitement that we formally announce our first ever hockey event outside of the DPRK. From November 3-11, Friendship-Leaguers will take on the storied Galkan HC pro team in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Having yet to lose an IIHF game, Turkmenistan is rapidly climbing the international rankings and will soon be a force to be reckoned with. This is your chance to make some friends and attempt something that has never before been achieved – beat Turkmenistan in hockey!

Participants from all three PIHL events will be present, making this a reunion like no other. If you want one of the last remaining places, sign up today and hold your spot!

The Turkmen Ice Hockey League (TIHL) is hosted by the Turkmen national hockey champion, professional team Galkan HC, who comprise more than 75% of the Turkmen national team.

Turkmenistan receives fewer tourists than both Afghanistan and North Korea, making the TIHL a sports event unlike any other. You will play both alongside and against the Galkan HC team in the afternoon, and explore Ashgabat during the day. In addition to the much anticipated overnight homestay in Nohur, this year’s event will see players travel to the Darvaza Gas Crater also known as ‘The Door of Hell’, one of the most surreal locations in Central Asia. Spectators will have the option of checking out the action in the arena or joining their tour guides for some more exploring.
