Jerseys for the senior 2021 World Championship

The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has revealed which jerseys the senior Russian national team will wear at the 2021 IIHF World Championship in Riga, Latvia.

The tournament will take place between May 21 and June 6.

The IIHF released this following statement:

"Following the Court of Arbitration in Sport (CAS) ruling in the case WADA v. RUSADA and with the IIHF being a WADA signatory, changes will be implemented at the venues in the appearance of the ice hockey teams coming from Russia at senior IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships as well as the Olympic Games.

"The CAS ruling will be implemented as follows at the venues:

"- The team will be called ROC, the abbreviation of the Russian Olympic Committee
"- The ROC emblem with no wording will be used as flag
"- The game jersey may use the existing jersey colours but may not include the flag, crest or other symbols of the Russian Federation but instead the ROC emblem
"- In post-game and medal ceremonies, Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 is played in place of the anthem of the Russian Federation

"The game jersey for the upcoming events affected by the CAS ruling will look as in the picture above. A similar jersey is planned for the Olympic ice hockey tournaments in Beijing 2022."
