Ice Blacks 2020 World Championship Tournament Cancelled by IIHF

By NZIHF | Posted: Saturday March 14, 2020

The IIHF has cancelled a number of Senior Men's Division II and III tournaments scheduled to take place in April.

The cancellation is due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has caused major disruptions to sporting events around the world. 

Among other teams, this means the Ice Blacks team will no longer be taking part in the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division II, Group B which was scheduled to take place in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The IIHF and its organizing member national associations previously had to cancel several men’s, women’s and under-18 men’s tournaments of the World Championship program in March and early April due to the coronavirus situation, including the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship that was scheduled in Canada.
