The IIHF have published the 2020 men’s and women’s world rankings, with Great Britain Men moving up a place to 19th and GB Women remaining unchanged in 23rd.

The annual ranking is based on the results in World Championship tournaments and Olympic Winter Games – including Olympic qualification – of the past four years and the 2020 edition is used for the seeding of the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

The 2020 rankings include points from the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship program in the men’s senior and women’s senior category.

For tournaments that were not played because of the coronavirus pandemic, the points will be given according to the seeding position as foreseen in the IIHF Sport Regulations.
