Berlin to host 2019 World Para Ice Hockey Championships

Berlin has been announced as host of the 2019 World Para Ice Hockey Championships B-Pool, which will take place from 17-22 November, 2019.

The Championships follow on from a hugely successful A-Pool edition held in May that saw sold-out matches and thrilling action in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Six teams will fight for the chance to experience that atmosphere at the 2021 World Championships A-Pool, with only the top two finishers moving up. The last-placed team will be relegated to the 2020 Worlds C-Pool.

The round-robin format held at the Eissporthalle Charlottenburg (‘’P09’’) am Glockenturmstrasse will feature hosts Germany leading the rankings, followed by Russia, Slovakia, Great Britain, Poland and China.

Germany will hope home advantage will boost their chances of a return to the A-Pool for the first time since their relegation in 2017.

The last World Championships B-Pool took place in Tomakonai, Japan in 2016. The Czech Republic defeated Japan for gold, moving both teams up to the A-Pool. Slovakia came away with the bronze medal.
