Great Britain’s matches at the World Championship in Zagreb will be covered live by BBC 5 Live Sports Extra and BBC Sport Online.

GB begin their Division 1B campaign on Sunday with a game against hosts Croatia.

BBC commentator Seth Bennett will bring play-by-play commentary on all five games next week.

Two of the matches have been confirmed on 5 Live Sports Extra, with all five being available on the BBC Sport website.

Bennett said: “This is a really chance for GB to go one better than last year when they just missed out on gold.

“Pete Russell has a very strong squad and if they play to their potential, that last game again Ukraine could be massive.

“As ever I am looking forward to the games and wherever you are, you will be able to listen them through the BBC Sport app or the BBC Radio iplayer app on your mobile phone.

“There are few better sports on the radio than ice hockey and so it should prove to be a really exciting time for hockey fans who want to follow the games.”
