CHANGE OF DATE AND VENUE FOR GB WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

There has been a change of date and venue for Great Britain Women’s World Championship Division 2 Group A in Slovenia.
 
The six-team IIHF tournament will now take place in Maribor and run from 31st March to 6th April 2018.
 
Matches will take place at the Ledna Dvorana ice rink.
 
The original location was Bled and the tournament was scheduled for a week later.
 
GB will face hosts Slovenia, along with Australia, DPR Korea, Netherlands and also Mexico, who were promoted from Division 2 Group B.
 
After IIHF Congress voted in May to extend the top flight to 10 teams, it means there will be no relegation from this season’s tournament.
 
GB Women won the bronze medal at the 2017 World Championship Division 2 Group A in Korea.
