Does anybody know where next year's WJC is going to be played? Thanks.
Somewhere in between Norway and Finland, I believe!
how will the attendance be there for the tourney? any idea?
Frozen Baltic Sea ?
Should be a great location. Is it going to be in Stockholm?
Somewhere else in Sweden
Thought it was in Switzerland? No?..
When will we have wjc? Moscow or St. Peterburgh would provide all the tournament needs. I would definitely attend some games and so many other people would too.
In Mora and Leksand, Sweden. Both "towns" (11 000 residents in Mora, 6 000 residents in Leksand) have SEL clubs and the interest in hockey is pretty decent.
Attendance should be good when Sweden is playing, but I would be surprised to see a lot of fans attending the other games. Junior hockey gets basically no major media coverage in Sweden. The WJC has not been broadcasted in six years, but will be (finally) next year when the tournament is held at home.
What about the 2008 WJC?
