Women’s World Hockey Championship has new dates, but location unknown

The 2021 Women’s World Hockey Championship has been postponed from August 20 to 31 at a location that has yet to be named.

The International Ice Hockey Federation said in a statement it will evaluate venues with Hockey Canada for the 10-country tournament, which was due to start next week in Halifax and Truro, Nova Scotia, but which has been canceled. .

Nova Scotia Premier Iain Rankin ended the tournament on April 21 due to concerns about the increase in COVID-19 cases in the province.

The teams were about to board international flights to Canada that day. Some players have criticized the IIHF for not having a backup plan.

The Nova Scotia Women’s Championship was canceled a second time. Last year’s tournament was canceled and this year’s tournament was postponed from April to May due to COVID-19.
