Cancellation European Cups 2020 (men and women)

in News Update

Dear members of the Icestocksport family,


All those who have kept an eye on the news during the last days, could see the dark clouds coming.
On Wednesday evening the official announcement was published: German Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and the Prime Ministers of the German Federal States have agreed upon a further Lockdown for Germany, coming into force on 2 November 2020, because of the severely rising infection numbers and the negative Corona trends.

This has direct impact on our sport, as we have to postpone the European Cups of women (20.-21.11.2020) und men (27.-29.11.2020).

We have to fight to keep our sport alive and we will try to play these two competitions in January 2021. We will keep an eye on the further development and we really hope that both European Cups can be held then. We will keep you in the loop.

For now, we strongly hope that the whole situation will improve and we all will be able to celebrate Christmas together with our families.


Stay healthy! Kind regards,

Christian Lindner
IFI President

Christian Lindner, IFI President

The bare numbers alone seem impressive, even gigantic. 33 years of service for the International Federation Icestocksport from 1966 to 1999, including 23 years as IFE President. Prior to that, Edelbert List, who has been Honorary President of the IFI since then, was Vice-President (1972-1976), member of the Technical Commission (1970-1972) and accountant and cash auditor for 10 years. The fact that he had had the IFE A referee license No. 002 since 1970 rounds off the profile on the international Icestocksport level to perfection.

His work in the German Ice Stock Federation (DESV) since its foundation in 1966 as a founding and Board member with 18 years in office as Sports Warden of DESV (1966-1984), Distance Shooting Representative, Treasurer and again 18 years as Referee Chairman and then Regional Chairman West testifies to his strong roots in the German Federation for Icestocksport, which he never lost. The list of more than 35 years of activities in the Hessian Ice Sports Association up to its Chairman and the other activities in and for sport from 1941, including gliding, would go beyond the scope of an obituary.

An article in the “Eisstockschützen”, the official bulletin of the DESV for his 70th birthday in 1996, with a statement from the “Olympic Youth Magazine” from 1985 is quoted here: “If a man is club president, sports warden, chairman of the regional association, full-time regional trainer for five different disciplines and is also a sports manager and referee chairman and national coach in a federal association and a member of the Executive Committee in another federal association and is even serving as president and managing director of an international federation, then that should answer the question of indispensability once and for all … “.

“A life for Icestocksport”, it makes you think when you think of Edelbert List. But it was so much more than that – he was essential to our sport. He loved and lived the Icestocksport and lived for the Icestocksport. Edelbert List was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. This was the well-deserved public recognition of a lifetime for volunteering. Edelbert List closed his eyes forever on August 20, 2020 in Frankfurt.

We will always keep his memory in high honor.

Re-entry in playing Icestocksport in the national federations and clubs

in News Update

Dear Members of the Icestocksport Family, dear Icestocksport players, dear administrators,

the Corona Pandemic has changed numerous of our daily routines. We need to accept many constraints. These measures are important to protect our own health as well as the health of our fellow men. However, we may under no circumstances lose our lust for life! This also includes the organised Icestocksport. I believe that it is important to take all necessary efforts to continue practicing our sport. We are a great team sport, that can be practiced without contact to our colleagues. Therefore, please undertake everything that is possible in the frame of the legal conditions to enable the further practice of our sport.

Think positive and not only about the worst case scenarios!

We all enjoy playing Icestock. Therefore, please take care of each other and follow the hygiene rules. Then our game operation can start well-regulated in the winter season 2020/21.

The IFI will provide support wherever needed. The necessary adjustment of rules will also be enforced. Yours sincerly

Your IFI

(Christian Lindner, IFI President)
