  • Introducing: BUIHA International All Stars!

    Every team needs an arch rival and the GBU just got one...

    It is our great pleasure to introduce two brand new teams: BUIHA Men’s and Women’s International All Stars! Known also as IAS, these two groups will be formed of the international students (staff excluded) and dual citizenship holders who are currently registered with BUIHA.

    To ensure that the Britain Universities Men’s and Women’s teams get best possible preparation to the World University Games, some stiff competition was needed. And what would be a better measurement than competing against other BUIHA players in an exhibition match, guaranteed to deliver high octane action from the first whistle to the final one.

    The rivalry is set to begin on 20th of April, 2018 when both IAS and GBU teams collide inside the legendary Ice Sheffield, ready showcase the talent found in the BUIHA rosters. The women’s teams take the ice at 1.30pm and the men’s teams at 7.30pm, tickets and pricing alongside further details will be posted here and through social media shortly.

    We are also excited to announce that these two selects teams will be led by Michael Szollosy (Sheffield), Kalle Uusitalo (London) and Maggie Benson (Edinburgh/Caledonia). These carefully selected individuals are responsible of the rosters and the management of the IAS teams in behalf of BUIHA.
