After 7 years the selections of two Spanish regions renew the duel. The women's teams debut

 
 
 
 

The unofficial "national team" of two regions of Spain, Catalunya e Euskadi (Basque Country), are back to battle after the last duel, played in 2009 in Puigcerdà, when Euskadi clearly won 9-1. The year before, in Bilbao, Catalunya won 5-3. After that double match, both teams have not played anymore. In total Catalunya played four games: besides the duel against Euskadi, in 1983, at the opening of Ice Rink in Puigcerdà, against HC Lausanne and a 2-0 victory against Belgium in 2003, again in Puigcerdà. One of the scorers against Belgium was the current Catalunya and CG Puigcerdà headcoach Salvador Barnola.

"I was a kid when Catalunya played last time - said FC Barcelona forward Oriol Rubio - so this game against Euskadi is a great opportunity for me. For now it's a friendly, but I hope someday to play also official games with Catalunya"

The duel was played on December 23 at Txuri Urdin Palace in San Sebastian and finished with a 4-3SO victory for Catalunya:
