The Swedish Ice Hockey Association announced today that it has selected Stockholm to serve as host city and main venue for the 2025 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, set to be co-hosted by Sweden and Denmark.
Stockholm will be joined by Herning which will serve as the Danish co-host venue for the tournament.
Sweden’s capital will host one eight-team group, two quarter-final games, as well as the semi-final and medal rounds.
Herning will host the other eight-team group during the preliminary round, together with the two other quarter-final games.
Both cities have played host to IIHF World Championships in the past few years, with Herning most recently hosting the 2018 tournament together with Copenhagen and Stockholm co-hosting with Helsinki in 2012 and 2013.
