The 2021 IIHF World Championship will be co-hosted by Minsk, Belarus and Riga, Latvia, as the IIHF announced on 19 May 2017.[1] Their joint bid won by a very tight margin against the Finnish bid with the cities of Tampere and Helsinki.[1] Each city will host one group and two quarter-final games, with both semi-finals and the medal games to be played in Minsk. It will be the second time hosting for both cities; Minsk was the sole host of the 2014 IIHF World Championship, while Riga hosted the 2006 IIHF World Championship.
