The EUHL is the combination of a well-though-out athletic program alongside a solid schooling system, contributing to the growth and quality of life for all EU communities involved. For the 2015 / 2016 season, the EUHL has an “EAST Division” with ten university teams from four countries (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Poland). With the projected growth, the EUHL has a vision of opening up the North, South and West divisions in Europe. With the increasing number of teams, this process is going to change and improve the level of hockey from year to year. The EUHL is on the right path to creating a new physical culture including supporting and developing the interests of ice hockey, the hobbies of young people and improving physical and mental capabilities in the areas of sports and creating conditions for strengthening the health of young people.”
