TIHL 2019: Registrations are open for the second TIHL!


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’, and to the Caspian Sea. Spectators will have the option of checking out the action in the arena or joining their tour guides for some more exploring.
