Here we go! The face-off of the first match of the World Para Ice Hockey Championships will happen tomorrow at noon. The opening game promises a duel full of emotions, excitement, intense encounters and interventions! The 2021 Ostrava World Para Ice Hockey Championships will begin with a game between the Czech Republic and South Korea teams! FANS PAY ATTENTION! It is definitely worth coming to the Ostravar Arena ahead of time as there will be an Opening show at 11:30 – an introductory ceremony full of light effects, interactive content with musical accompaniment provided by Markéta Konvičková!

Come cool off and have a good time! Tomorrow you will experience a sporting show like no other that only para ice hockey can offer. The World Championships are returning to Ostrava after two years and will be offering something extraordinary once again. “We are opening the gates to the Ostravar Arena for eager fans at 10:30, and I think that, with the current tropical temperatures, people will appreciate a cool place even though our Opening Ceremony is ironically really fiery, full of light and para ice hockey stories,” said the head of the championships, Jiří Šindler. The opening ceremony will also culminate in the entire Relive the moment campaign. Fans know the main protagonists from online commercial spots and billboards – Peter the fan, Samson the penguin and our para ice hockey representative Zdeněk Krupička. They will all meet together at the opening ceremony of the championships. The first game against South Korea, which will be very important for the Czech team, will follow without any delay. “We are ready to give it our all. The game will immediately determine who we could go up against after the preliminary round,” said the coach of the Czech para ice hockey national team Jiří Bříza.


Saturday’s opening day of the Ostrava 2021 Para Ice Hockey Championships offer four duels. Tickets are still on sale for the Home team game. They will also be available at the ticket offices at the Ostravar Arena. At 10:00, our outdoor fanzone will open for fans right next to the Ostravar Arena. The fanzone will offer not only broadcasts of all games but also fun mobile playgrounds, competitions for prizes and great refreshments, as well as a cooling system. Let’s Relive the moment together! Come and support para ice hockey players and enjoy the best that the world’s para ice hockey has to offer. It will be a fantastic emotional spectacle!
