Ball Hockey World Championship in Dmitrov

Between the 12th and 17th of June, the 2018 Ball Hockey World Championship will take place in Dmitrov, Russia.

In the women's category, Russia will compete against America, Canada, Great Britain and the Czech Republic. Representatives of the senior Russian women's national team will turn out for Russia.

Elsewhere, the men's tournament sees Russia pitted with Slovakia, Canada, the Czech Republic and Great Britain. Group winners move directly into the final, while teams in second and third places compete in the semi-final stage.
