The official launch for the World Championship Division II Group A has taken place in Dumfries.

The Dumfries Ice Bowl will play host to Great Britain, Estonia, Japan, Korea, Netherlands and Romania.

The six-team IIHF tournament runs from Sunday 10th to Saturday 16th December.

The tournament, jointly organised by Ice Hockey UK and Dumfries & Galloway Council, represents yet another coup for the region as it welcomes back international ice hockey for a sixth consecutive year.

Councillor Adam Wilson, who leads on the council’s events strategy which has delivered a number of major occasions to the region, said: “World Championship ice hockey is a wonderful tournament to bring to Dumfries, and an exciting prospect for all sports fans.

"We have an enviable recent tradition of hosting IIHF World Championship tournaments and are proud to be able to bring the Great Britain national team at Under-20s level back to South West Scotland.

“Ice hockey is alive and well in Dumfries and past tournaments have really boosted the profile and participation numbers in the sport – I’m sure this Under-20s World Championship will be no different.”

Tickets for the tournament are on sale and range from just £5 for a single match ticket to £25 for the full week championship pass.

There are group discounts available and up to two under-16s can go free with every ticket-purchasing adult.

Tickets are available from the Midsteeple Box Office and the Ice Bowl, as well as online at this link https://www.ticketweb.co.uk/search/?keyword=ice+bowl
