Hockey Canada and the local Host Organizing Committee have decided that tickets for preliminary-round games at the 2021 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship will not be available to the public. Hockey Canada continues to work with health authorities to investigate all options as it relates to ticketing and fan capacity for the event, with a continued focus and emphasis on the health of Albertans and the 10 competing Federations.  
“While we would love to be able to welcome fans to WinSport Arena in Calgary, our priority focus is the health and safety of all involved, allowing the best women’s hockey players in the world to compete and ensuring we can present medals on August 31,” said Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer of Hockey Canada. “We are incredibly fortunate to have the tremendous support of our broadcast partners, as TSN will broadcast all preliminary-round games, quarter-finals, semi-finals and medal games, while RDS will provide coverage of all Canada games, in addition to playoff-round games.”

Games will also be shown by broadcast partners in most of the participating countries. Click here for the list of broadcasters.
