Ice Hockey Queensland


Ice Hockey is the fastest-growing team sport in the world, capitalizing on the great success of the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea in 2018.


With Beijing, China having been recently announced as the host city for the 2022 Winter Olympics*, the sport in Australasia is set to boom.


Ice hockey is a sport that can be played 12 months a year in a sun-safe and secure environment. There are significant recreational benefits associated with this accessibility, as well as the economic and employment opportunities that create enhanced community benefits.


IHQ has engaged PDS to undertake scoping and preliminary feasibility studies on how to grow the sport in Queensland. Matters to be considered are participation rates, provision of "ice time", facilities requirements, financial viability, potential partners, local authority buy-in and security of tenure.


* This makes Beijing the first city to have ever hosted both a Summer and a Winter Olympics.
