GB WOMEN GAMES ON THE BBC

Great Britain Women’s games at the World Championship Division 2 Group A will be broadcast live this week on BBC 5 Live Sports Extra and the BBC Sport website.

The first four games, including Sunday’s opener against Netherlands will be on both 5 Live Sports Extra and the website, with Sunday’s final match against Australia on the website only.

Ice Hockey UK general secretary, Andy French, said: “It is fantastic we are linking up with the BBC again.

“They have taken commentaries from the men’s World Championship in recent years – and also broadcast the commentary from the women’s Olympic qualifiers in Kazakhstan in November.

“It is great to have them on-board with us and fantastic that people back in the UK will be able to follow the team’s progress.”
