On April 16, 2018, it was announced that Ostrava and Třinec, in the Moravian-Silesian Region in the northeast corner of the Czech Republic, would be the host cities.[2] It will be the second time that Ostrava has been the primary host of the tournament and the first time that Třinec has hosted in any capacity. Ostrava has also twice co-hosted the senior Ice Hockey World Championships.
