An unprecedented event in world hockey can happen this year. The 2020 World Hockey Championship, which is scheduled for May 8-24 in the Swiss cities of Zurich and Lausanne, can be moved to another country. In particular, Russia and Belarus are considered as alternative countries for this sport event.
This is due to the spread of coronavirus in Western Europe. This possible decision was announced by the first persons of the International Hockey Federation, under the auspices of which the World Cup is being held.
As Rene Fasel says there are not many countries where they can move the tournament. It will be very difficult to postpone the World Cup, but there will probably be an opportunity to postpone it to Sochi, there is also an option with Belarus. Now they are studying various solutions to the problem. But for today it is only a theory. Everything will be clearer after March 15.
If the World Cup is really postponed, then this will be the first time in the history of Championship. After this news, one of the World Cup 2020 advertising posters with its slogan “Let’s make history” sounds ambiguously.
