The IIHF 12 Nations Invitational Tournament Series was held in Vierumäki, Finland (August 24-31), Courchevel, France (August 28-30), and Füssen, Germany (November 9-13). The competing nations will be the national women's teams. This is a new tournament introduced by the International Ice Hockey Federation. The goal is to close the large gaps in skill between countries by providing more competitive opportunities. The eight competing countries in Vierumaki, Finland are Canada, United States, Finland, Sweden, Russia, Switzerland, Slovakia and Japan. France, Germany, Norway and the Czech Republic also played in a mini-tournament simultaneously in Courchevel, France. Teams from Group B and C played in the tournament held in Füssen.

There were no medals awarded at the tournament, and its main purpose was to develop players from countries attempting to qualify for the Olympic Games in 2014.[1]

Mistaken Identity. The name of the tournament was mistakenly printed on several publications and websites as the "IIHF 8 Nations Tournament". The "IIHF 12 Nations Invitational Tournament Series" was the official name for the tournament.
