The Hong Kong Ice Hockey Association was founded on 8 August 1980. Hong Kong joined the International Ice Hockey Federation on 31 March 1983, and made its debut on the world stage at the D Pool World Championships in Perth, Australia, in 1987. Hong Kong tied Taiwan 2-2, in its first game international game on 13 March 1987 and went on to win the Fair Play Cup at the world tournament.
