The International Hockey Federation is going to change the grouping at the World Cup - 2021, which will be held in Belarus and Latvia. The teams of Russia and Canada will swap places. This will be done to ensure that the Russians held the group round matches in Minsk, and not in Riga. This information is available to the RIA Novosti resource.

Now the rivals of the Russian team in Group A will be Sweden, the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovakia, Denmark, Belarus and the United Kingdom. World Cup - 2021 must be held from May 7 to 23.
