The Yugoslav Ice Hockey League was the top ice hockey league in the old Yugoslavia.

In 1939 Yugoslavia became a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation. That year also, the country held its first national championship, with Ilirija emerging as champion. For many years, teams from Slovenia dominated even if Serbian and Croatian teams were also successful for a while during the late-1980's and early-1990's, right before the breakup of Yugoslavia.[1]

The League folded in 1991, when the country split. Since then Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia have had their own national Leagues.
