The 2015 IIHF World Hockey Championships are barely a thought to most people at this point, but not for two countries in particular.

The Slovakian Ice Hockey Federation and the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation have announced their bids to host the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

As an independent country, Slovakia has only hosted one World Championship when the world’s top teams made their way out to Bratislava in 2011. It’s expected that Bratislava and Kosice are the intended locations for 2019, but an official report will be sent to the IIHF in January 2015.

For Switzerland, the country has already hosted the tournament in 1935, 1939, 1953, 1961, 1971, 1990, 1998 and most recently in 2009. No venues have been announced yet, but the 7th ranked country is expected to announce their intentions in October.

The official host will be announced during the 2015 World Championships next May in Prague, Czech Republic.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
