For the first three rounds of the preliminary part of the Ostrava 2021 World Para Ice Hockey Championships, Tickets are still available for purchase. However, the championships also offer other ways of support for the best para ice hockey players in the world—for example, online, during TV broadcasts or through a bookmaker.


Unprecedented content that is full of humour and footage that you won’t be able to see anywhere else. This is an online broadcast called ParaHockeyTV, which launches today at noon. “Every day, a fresh batch of information starts at 8:00 and ends at 23:00. The mornings will be used to summarise the most important things that await us on a given day and remind and review the best from the previous day. We will also premiere new formats, said František eF. Horvát, the creative ParaHockeyTV producer. In addition to individual game broadcasts, we will offer television formats that are quite unusual for sporting events. “We have decided that strange times will not scare us away. We took advantage of this online year and a limited arena capacity, and we have decided to let the viewers see, via the broadcasts, places that would not be otherwise possible even during the regular World Championships, added František eF. Horvát. Viewers won’t get a chance to miss anything important from the Ostrava 2021 World Para Ice Hockey Championships, thanks to online broadcasts. They will get to peek behind the curtains of the tournament’s preparations and the environments of athletes, officials or coaches. There will also be interviews with VIP guests of the championships. Our moderator and para ice hockey player – Aleš Alessandro Němec, will comment on each day’s events in our show Goals, points and prostheses every day at 20:00!  The ParaHockeyTV crew that counts more than fifteen members won’t forget to recall and follow up on interesting para ice hockey stories, which started as early as 2019. Every day, the entire broadcast will be concluded with the popular slow tv. This format allows you to relax throughout the day with a burning fireplace or an aquarium full of fish. Para hockey’s slow tv will be following one phenomenon from the championships venue, but viewers will have to wait for the details.

Let’s get the party started with our ParaHockeyTV!

Did you pick your favorite? Place a bet!

The tournament starts on Saturday at 11:30 with an opening ceremony. You can look forward to a light show, a DJ but what will be especially exciting is the closely watched duel between South Korea x Czech Republic, which starts at 12:00. Do you have a bet on the winner yet? Will the Czechs return the blow to South Korea after their 2019 bronze medal loss? If you have a tip, you can place a bet for your winner on the championships’ partner website – Tipsport.

Live broadcasts on Czech Television and a special break program

Para ice hockey became known to fans also thanks to the Czech Television broadcasts with excellent commentary by Robert Záruba and Veronika Macková. This crew will be taking care of live broadcasts of Czech games from the Ostrava 2021 World Para Ice Hockey Championships as well. Veronika Macková, a reporter and Czech Television commentator, had this to say: “We are already looking forward to the tournament. Ostrava once again promises great sporting and work experiences. We are finishing the preparation of the break program, so I will be cutting the footage from the medallions of the Czech representation until the very last moment. You are in for a treat. You will see players off the ice and without their equipment, finally.
