The Swedish Ice Hockey Association will be bidding for the opportunity to host the World Cup in Men’s Hockey 2025. This comes almost 13 years after Sweden hosted a World Cup, that ended in a financial fiasco for the association, but a win for the Swedish national team, Tre Kronor.
The association will be submitting their application, today, while on a conference in Malta. Together with Russia and the Czech Republic, Sweden has agreed on a 3-year plan where they will all take turns to host the World Cup. Russia opting for 2023, the Czech Republic for 2024 and Sweden for 2025.
“I truly hope that this will sit well with the international hockey family. Especially when we’ve had such success in negotiating this mutual 3-year plan with the Russians and the Czechs,” said Anders Larsson, the president of the Swedish Ice Hockey Association to Radiosporten.
