Hello all,


I am interested in finding information regarding when the host countries for the various A Pool / Top Division IIHF World Championships were selected.

I have myself found the following:

1970: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 1968 (later changed in 1970 as Canada withdrew from international hockey)
1996: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 1992
1999: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 1995
2010: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2005
2011: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2006
2012: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2007 (joint bid with Sweden decided in 2009)
2013: Selected at IIHF Semi-Annual Congress in September 2007 (joint bid with Finland decided in 2009)
2014: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2009
2015: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2010
2016: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2011
2017: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2013
2018: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2014
2019: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2015
2020: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2015
2021: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2017
2022: Selected at IIHF Annual Congress in 2017

So my question for the community: do anyone have any information about the other IIHF World Championship tournament host selections (1970 to 1995, 1997-1998, 2000-2009), and if possible, any info on which countries placed formal bids for these tournaments?

If anyone also have info in regards to Pool B/C/D / Division I/II/III tournaments, that would also be appreciated. :)

Thank you in advance for your help. :)
