How Covid-19 impacted the World Juniors 2021

Covid-19 reshaped this year’s world juniors hockey.

  • All the games will be played behind closed doors. Spectators will not be allowed!
  • Players and staffs that tested positive after November 29 will automatically not participate in the game. This has led to teams like Austria, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and USA adjusting their squad.
  • No team will be relegating this year because of the cancelled 2021 IIHF Ice Hockey U20 World Championship Division. Therefore, the same team that participated in the world juniors 2021 will also participate in world juniors 2022.
  • The tournament will be held in a single venue in Edmonton.

Last year World juniors winners

The last edition of World Juniors was won by Canada after beating Russia. This is not the first time the country is to beat Russia in this kind of competition. This is in fact the fifth time it has happened. It shows that Canada is one of the country’s leading this stage of the hockey tournament. This edition is holding in this country; the world is waiting to see whether Canada can repeat that process. That is knowing whether they can beat the world again al win this championship. This has truly established them as one of the leading nations when it comes to this edition of the championship.

Final word

We are glad the world juniors 2021 will take place in spite of the global pandemic. However, the games will be played behind closed doors in a single venue at Edmonton, Canada.  The tournament will begin December 25, Christmas day, and ends January 5.

This means the fans can only watch the games live via the broadcasting channels or steaming services such as mobdro, youtube TV, fubo TV etc.

This year’s tournament will definitely not be as the usual world juniors championship, but it promises to be exciting as the tournament will see returning players as well as young, vibrant newcomers that are ready to take the world stage. Confirm if your local TV station will be broadcasting the games, if not stream it live on your Smartphone or PC.
