Düsseldorf/Bilek (dpa) – The German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) has officially announced its bid to host the 2027 World Championships at the IIHF semi-annual conference in Belek, Turkey.

DEB announced in a letter that it will submit the required documents with places by the deadline of January 10, 2023. The 2027 Championship will be awarded at the IIHF Annual Conference as part of the upcoming 2023 World Championships in Tampere, Finland. In addition to Germany, Kazakhstan and Norway also announced their applications.

“With our world-renowned arenas and fantastic fans, we are convinced we can host a successful and exciting World Cup,” said DEB President Peter Merten. In 2017, Germany hosted the World Championships with France and lost to Canada in the quarter-finals (1-2). With a total of 650,000 spectators in Cologne and Paris, this World Cup is among the three most successful World Cup tournaments. The opening match of the 2010 World Cup in Germany between DEB and the USA (2:1 afterwards) had 77,803 spectators at the Schalke Arena.
