IISHF Regulations §18.16:

IISHF Presidium will be entitled to nominate another host in case of time cancellation by the original host.

3.   Conditions for NMA if not hosted European Championships within last 10 years

In the IISHF Regulations it’s fixed in the §9.1 and §9.2 IISHF Regulations what the consequences are for a NMA if not hosted over the last 10 years. Thus Participation Fees as well as Referee and Officials will be doubled.

IISHF Regulations §9.1:
If a National Member Association takes part with a National Team, over the last 10 years, at a European Championships and has not hosted (or made an official application that was unsuccessful) a European Championships in the same age group during that period, the Participation Fees will be doubled. For new National Member Associations this will not start until first participation within that age group.

The Host National Member Association of Each European Championships will be reimbursed no later than 14 days before the event with 50% of all Participation Fees that have been paid to the IISHF.

IISHF Regulations §9.2:
If a National Member Association takes part with a National Team, over the last 10 years, at a European Championships and has not hosted (or made an official application that was unsuccessful) a European Championships in the same age group during that period, the Referee and Officials Travelling Fees will be doubled.

Please note that there is a bonus for a country hosting making it more attractive to host. Attached please find documents showing past performance and hosting and also the benefits of hosting.

4.   Agreement made in regards to hosting of IISHF U19 European Championships

Please take note of the agreement which was made between Austria, Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland that starting in 2018 these four countries shall host the IISHF U19 European Championships each once in the next 4 four following years sequence. This would mean that next year 2023 it is the duty of Austria to host the IISHF U19 European Championships.
