2023 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship

The 2023 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship will take place in Tampere (Finland) and Riga (Latvia) from 12 May to 28 May 2023. We will draw ticket purchase rights for the games played in Riga.

In order to ensure equal opportunities to attend matches of the Latvian national team, as well as to reduce the risks of fraud, the right to purchase day tickets of the B subgroup tournament for the dates on which the matches of the Latvian national team will take place will be determined by lottery.

Canada, Czechia, Switzerland, Slovakia, Latvia, Norway, Kazakhstan and Slovenia (Group B) will play their preliminary round in Riga.

Any interested party can participate in the lottery for the right to purchase tickets by registering their participation in the registration form below.

The winners of the raffle will have the chance to buy up to six day tickets for the 2023 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship group B tournament. As part of the lottery, day tickets will only be available for the days on which the Latvian national team games are taking place.

All winners will receive a prize notification and information on how to purchase tickets in the e-mail address provided when registering for the draw.

Registration for the draw is closed. Thanks to all participants!
