NEWS: in-house rules document published for new season

September 6, 2019

With the new season underway, we are pleased to confirm that the 2019/20 In-House Rules document has been published with thanks to our colleagues at the Ice Hockey UK Referee Section.

Competitions played under the EIHA umbrella use the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Official Rule Book 2018-2022 as a base for the rules of the game.  While the majority of the rules in the IIHF Rule Book will be enforced as written, due to the facilities and nature of the game in England there are specific rules which will be applied in part or have been altered to fit the EIHA environment.

The In-House Rules can be downloaded from this link and will also be available via the ‘Resources’ section of the EIHA website.  The full IIHF Official Rule Book is available from
