Proposal for the world championship in Irkutsk!
On August 28, 2021, a meeting was held with the participation of the presidents of the Russian National Federation, the Swedish National Federation and the Finnish National Federation on the occasion of the current dropouts from the World Championship tournament in Irkutsk in October this year.
At the meeting, it was agreed to submit a proposal to be presented to the FIB Executive Committee and the Organizing Committee in Irkutsk. In the proposal, the three national federation presidents proposed that the World Championship 2020 instead should be played in October 2022, still in Irkutsk.
A decision on the matter will be made by the FIB Executive Committee shortly.
The three presidents also plan to have a joint meeting in the future to discuss how the international bandy community can best develop its readiness to work with and handle similar situations as the current covid pandemic.
