Ice Hockey European Championship 1926

The 1926 Ice Hockey European Championship was the 11th edition of the ice hockey tournament for European countries associated to the International Ice Hockey Federation .

The tournament was played between January 11, and January 19, 1926, in Davos, Switzerland, and it was won by Switzerland.

Nine teams entered the competition and were divided into three groups of three for the preliminary round. The preliminary round was scheduled over the first three days, the "qualification for the final round" was contested in one day, and the "final" round was scheduled over the last three days. The tournament was however extended by an additional two days to accommodate a three-way tie-break round, which became necessary due to the three-way tie on points for the gold medal.
