Lee Valley Lions have entered into a partnership with Hockey Algeria, revolving around mutual publicity for the two teams. The aim is to introduce Algerians in the UK to ice hockey, providing youngsters with the opportunity to get involved and learn how to play.
Algerian player Karim Kerbouche iced for the Lions in the 09/10 season and with this partnership we expect more Algerian players to sign in the future.
There are tentative plans for exhibition games between Team Algeria and Lee Valley Lions, but this will depend on approval being obtained from the English Ice Hockey Association. Should the games gain approval, they will be announced here and on the Hockey Algeria site.
