Slovakia hosts 2019 IIHF World Championship

Graphic News

May 10-26, 2019 -- The men's Ice Hockey World Championship takes place in the cities of Bratislava and Košice in Slovakia, where the world’s top 16 national teams will compete for the gold medal.

Hosts Slovakia play in Group A at Kosice’s Steel Arena, and have been drawn with world number one side Canada, United States, Finland, Germany, Denmark, France and Britain.

Britain will be playing at the sport’s top level for the first time since 1994, after winning promotion at last year’s Division One World Championship.

Group B will be played at Bratislava’s Ondrej Nepela Arena and will feature Sweden, who will be aiming for their third straight title, alongside 2018 runners-up Switzerland, Olympic gold medallists Russia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Austria and newly promoted Italy.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
