The 2008 IIHF World Championship Division III Qualification tournament was held from February 15, 2008 to February 17, 2008. The winner of this tournament, Greece, advanced to the next level of the IIHF World Championship, which is the Division III tournament.
The directorate of the IIHF World Championship Division III Qualification decided that both games of Armenia will be forfeited and will count as 5-0 wins for their opponents, Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Armenia refused to show the passports of its players on four occasions until its first game was in progress. Originally, Armenia lost to Greece 8-5 on Saturday and won against Bosnia and Herzegovina, 18-1. Even without the forfeit, Greece earned the promotion outright to this year’s World Championship Division III with two victories on the ice.
