World Hockey Championship

21 May 2019
It’s no secret that Latvians are completely nuts about hockey. Current and former NHL and KHL stars are treated like royalty in Riga and Parliament even once famously postponed a session of government because it conflicted with a Latvian national hockey team game. This year’s World Ice Hockey Championship will be held in Bratislava and Košice, Slovakia from May 10 - 26, 2019. Nearly every pub in town will show the hockey tournament, especially the Latvian games, so if you go some place for a pint in May don’t be surprised to see plenty of Latvians wearing team shirts, goofy hats and other paraphernalia. You can also watch games with other fans at the so-called 'Fan Tent' in front of the Riga Congress Centre throughout the tournament. For a complete tournament schedule visit www.iihf.com. Times listed are local Latvian time.
