Ice Hockey Northern Ireland, abbreviated to IHNI, is responsible for the administration of all ice hockey in Northern Ireland, and was set up in early 2011.[1]

The body consists of 5 teams, Belfast Ice Foxes, Northern Ireland Tridents, Northern Ireland Prowlers, Belfast Spitfires and the Castlereagh Spartans.[2][3][4]

IHNI runs an in-house round robin style tournament for both a Winter and Summer Cup, consisting of 6 games per team in the 'League period', to set your place for 'Playoff' semi-finals in the format of 1st vs 4th and 2nd vs 3rd.

The winners of the semi-finals go on to play in the Final.
