2020 U18 World Championship Division II Group B to be relocated

The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) have announced that the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship Division II Group B tournament will be relocated away from the originally planned Tianjin, China. The Australian men’s under-18 team is one of six teams in this tournament along with Bulgaria, China, Croatia, the Netherlands and Spain. The change in venue is due to the coronavirus outbreak in China and follows talks with the Chinese Ice Hockey Association. Hosting applications for the tournament have now been opened to the other five participating members. The IIHF expects to announce the new venue and date of the tournament in due time.
