In the first game of the tournament, which will be played on December 25 at 12:00 local time (20:00 CET), Switzerland will face Slovakia at Rogers Place in Edmonton. Further opponents of the Swiss team in Group A will be Finland (Dec. 27, 20:00 CET), Canada (Dec. 30, 00:00 CET), and Germany (Dec. 31, 00:00 CET).

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the IIHF already decided earlier that the tournament will take place. Just like the NHL-playoffs, however, the World Juniors will be held in a "bubble" in Edmonton's Rogers Place without any spectators present.
