IIHF (Ice Hockey) World Championships 2019 - GB Fixtures etc Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just thought I'd give a shout out to the GB mens Ice Hockey team who will take to the ice in Kosice, Slovakia, in the first of their Elite division group games against Germany later today (15:10 coverage starts on Freesports). It's 25 years since the team were last dining at Ice Hockey's top table and they'll be facing some of the biggest and best from across the world over the next ten days.

Yesterday evening they released the following documentary on Youtube documenting their incredible achievement to even reach this level of competition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQ_b5MtB_Fs

The Group A fixtures and a very brief guide from the BBC are available here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/.../ice-hockey/47308076

All GB games can be watched on Freesports, coverage starting 5 mins before the face off of each game. There are also a range of other games that Freesports will be covering. See their website (https://www.freesports.tv/lives.html). BBC are providing radio coverage of GB games, too, on 5 Live Sports Extra.

Here are some other pieces on the tournament and GB's involvement:

And GB will be in the top group next time too!

After a string of defeats (some close, some not) it all boiled down to the last game against France - GB won 4-3 in overtime after being 0-3 down Cool.



If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.

What a result! A very respectable tournament for all involved. Will likely see a more youthful team next year in Switzerland and things could be even tougher to retain a place in the top group. Belarus could well be placed in the same group as GB and are exempt from relegation as Minsk and Riga (Latvia) have been selected as 2021's host cities!

Lots of content available on IHUKTV's Youtube channel for anyone wanting to catch up with the highlights from GB games. https://www.youtube.com/user/IHUKTV/videos
