History of hockey in MacedoniaEdit
Hockey activities died out for a while after the breakup of Yugoslavia, but began again in 2011 after the opening of a new ice rink, the Boris Trajikovski Sports Center, in Skopje.
HK Skopje participated in three games in the multi-national Total TV Hockey League in the 2011-12 season. More games were originally scheduled to be played, but the season was not completed. The Macedonian Championship was contested for the first time in 2014. HK Metalurg Skopje became the first national champions. Metalurg has also played in the Balkan League since 2013-14, winning the league title in 2015.
The national team played its first game on March 27, 2011, against Red Star Sofia of Bulgaria in Skopje. Macedonia ended up losing the game by a score of 4-1. In December 2014 Macadonia played two exhibition games against the Bulgarian Junior National Team (U20) in Skopje. They lost the first game 6-5 in overtime and won the second 4-3 following a shootout, recording the teams first ever win.
The national team has not yet debuted at the World Championships. However, the national inline hockey team (composed mostly of ice hockey players) has participated in the IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship Qualification tournament since 2011-12.
