Moscow, January 5 – The President of the International Ice Hockey Federation Luc Tardiev said at a press conference that the IIHF will consider the possibility of holding one of the World Youth Championships in Novosibirsk at the next meeting of the congress.
The World Youth Championship (players under the age of 20) was supposed to be held in Novosibirsk and Omsk in December 2022 – January 2023, but Russia was denied the right to host the tournament due to the situation in Ukraine. As a result, Canadian Halifax and Moncton were chosen as the venues for the World Youth Championship, and the Russian team was suspended from the competition.
The head of the IIHF also noted that at the next congress a decision will be made on whether it will be possible to organize the World Youth Championship in Russia again.
