Up to this point, it is a rumor that has been denied by everyone. Asked directly about it by the Russian sports journalist Igor Eronko in an interview published on sport-express.ru, René Fasel would neither deny or confirm it and only said: "We'll see. We'll see."

A year ago, the long-term president of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) announced that he will not run for another presidential term in 2020. His successor at the IIHF is going to be elected at the IIHF Congress during the 2020 World Championship.
