27Β wins, 5Β reigns, 30Β gamesΒ with IHLC – rankedΒ 10th
IHLC last held 20 March 1950

One of the original contenders of the International Hockey Lineal Championship, Great BritainΒ won the third ever IHLC from France in their first tilt in 1907. The Lions were a major competitor in the pre-war era, shocking the world with a Gold medal at the 1936 Olympics, followed up with back-to-back World Championship in 1937 and 1938, respectively. However, the outbreak of World War II put a damper on the team, as they fell out of contention shortly after the war, have not held the IHLC since 1950, and have only qualified for the Top Division five times since 1951 (1962, 1994, 2019, 2021-22).
