IHLC Team Profiles – ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ Switzerland (Women’s)

w-switzerland-team
๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ SWITZERLAND (SUI) Womenโ€™s National Ice Hockey Team (1987-)

While theย Swiss team is considered by many to be the next emerging nation to break the “big four” of women’s hockey (Canada, USA, Sweden, Finland), the Eisgenossenย have yet to win the IHLC after multipleย attempts. However, the team has come a long way from their 10-0 drubbing in the first ever women’s international game in 1987, coming quite close at the 2014 Olympics, where they emerged a surprising Bronze medal winner, the first non-“big four” team to medal in Olympic women’s hockey.
