Each of the 16 nations qualified for the World Championship will be represented by one Xbox and one PS4 national champion. The first four games in the global knockout phase have been confirmed for next Friday, 29 May.
The following Saturday holds some top-class rivalry games. USA will meet Canada in the North American tilt. With Germany and Denmark, two other neighbouring countries will be competing against each other. And while many would expect a clear outcome in the last two matchups of the round of 16 between Sweden vs. Italy and Belarus vs. Czech Republic - on the virtual ice you can never count anybody out.
The countdown is on!
