The Ice Hockey World Championship will take place in Riga from May 21 to June 6. The Russian national team is called one of the main favorites. Why didn't the NHL stars come to the championship and what to expect from our team's unpredictable rivals from across the ocean? There will be no spectators: it was decided to hold the 2021 Ice Hockey World Championship pin up kz with empty stands. Whether the restrictions would be so strict was not clear until very recently - back in April, representatives of the 2021 World Cup organizing committee said they hoped they would be allowed to fill the stands by 50 percent, while promising to fulfill all anti-epidemic safety standards. But the situation with the spread of coronavirus in Latvia, which has become the sole owner of the current championship, is far from normalization. Television broadcasts are now the only option where you can watch the game.
