New countries to join the MIHWA family!
As dramatic developments around the world take their toll on sports events, The Masters and Veterans Inline World Cup is no exception. Though a blow to the committee, players, teams and everyone involved the work does not stop. All the while negotiations are being held with new potential entrants into the wider MIHWA family of nations participating in this unique inline hockey event.
Talks are ongoing with Sweden to develop a full team, after only a few players could attend last year in Asiago, and joined a make up "World Team". This has inspired them to try and put together a full squad, and work is ongoing there. Further inquiries are being heard from national organisations and interested parties from countries such as Greece, Columbia, Chile, Namibia, and some potential for countries in Southeast Asia interested as well.
Said MIHWA president David Ninzatti "Today I am speaking to the whole world!". It is an ambitious project to include more teams in the World Cup, and as these are confirmed, the structure and planning will need to step up to meet the challenge. But MIHWA are excited to welcome new nations to join our international group, and further raise the profile of this unique version of this classic sport.
