28 tournaments will be played next season in the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship program.

The Swiss Ice Hockey Federation announced the venues for the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship. The event will be played in April in central Switzerland in the cities of Zug and Lucerne.

The worlds’ best U20 teams will go to the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship in Toronto and Montreal, Canada, as it was known before. The 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship will be played in Malmo, Sweden, while the women’s U18 category will be played in the United States in a city to be announced soon.

Due to the big interest in hosting IIHF events, several tournaments had more than one applicant and a vote among the participating teams and the IIHF Council was required.

The 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division I Group A with the best nations outside the top-16 will be hosted by Donetsk. The Ukrainian bid won the vote against the Polish with Krakow. The Division I Group B will be played in Eindhoven, Netherlands, after Tallinn, Estonia, had pulled out.
