Armenia forfeits both of their games[edit]

The directorate of the IIHF World Championship Division III Qualification decided that both games of Armenia will be forfeited and will count as 5-0 wins for their opponents, Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Armenia refused to show the passports of its players on four occasions until its first game was in progress. Originally, Armenia lost to Greece 8-5 on Saturday and won against Bosnia and Herzegovina, 18-1. Even without the forfeit, Greece earned the promotion outright to this year’s World Championship Division III with two victories on the ice.
