Ice hockey in Brazil[edit]

Brazil joined the IIHF in 1984, but the country has still not participated in any World Championship because of inline hockey. There are a number of rinks around the country. The teams that competed for the 2009-10 national championship are Sociedade Hipica Campinas, Sertãozinho, Amparo NL, Palmeiras, Darks-Guariani, Portuguesa, and Capelle Hockey School. Mike Greenlay and Robyn Regehr, who both played in the NHL, were born in Brazil.

Brazil participate in the 2014 Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament. They played their first international game against the host nation, Mexico, which they lost 16-0.
