IIHF World Championship

According to a report by ria.ru from yesterday, the IIHF will perform a swap between Canada and Russia.

Switzerland might face Canada instead of Russia next year.

Apparently, the decision to swap Russia with Canada for the 2021 edition has already been made and will be officially approved in the upcoming weeks. Next year, in Belarus and Latvia, the same groups will, therefore, be used as those planned for this year's edition in Switzerland, except for this change.

This modification means that Switzerland will play against Canada, Finland, the USA, Latvia, Norway, Italy, and Kazakhstan in group B, based in Riga.
