World Championship women in Åby!
Now the venue for the women’s World Championships in Sweden is decided. The venue 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 play in January in Stockholm but for various reasons it was moved and will now be played March 23-27 in small 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 of 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.
Sweden is the reigning world champion but there are several other teams that certainly want to change that.
