FIB 2022 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WOMEN
The FIB World Championship for women is played every two years. The tournament 2022 will be arranged March 23-27, 2022 in Swedenn.
Now is the venue decided. It will be Åby, which is a small community north of Växjö in Sweden but with its own indoor arena. The tournament was actually planned to be played in January in Stockholm but for various reasons it was moved and will now be played March 23-27 in Åby.
Eriksson Ice Arena, Åby
Eriksson Ice Arena is a newly built bandy arena in Åby, the small community located north of Växjö in southern Sweden about 400 kilometers south o Stockholm. The arena was completed in 2019 and Åby/Tjureda, which is a team in the Bandyallsvenskan that is the Swedish second division, normally plays there.
